Dead time correction in x-ray spectrography: M38-8/65E-PDF

"The customary dead time correction applied to X-ray counting rates has been found unsatisfactory for the counting equipment used in the Mineral Sciences Division of the Mines Branch. Using a range of wavelengths from CrKα to BaKα and foils of several materials, an amended formulation for calculating- dead time and the true counting rate has been developed by the multifoil technique. Results obtained by a single foil and a two source method agree well with the multifoil ones using the amended formula"--Abstract, p. 67.
