Description of a computer method for the correction and prediction of electron microprobe data / R.H. Packwood, Physical Metallurgy Division.: M34-20/130E-PDF

“A computer method for correcting and predicting electron microprobe data is described. The programme is written in FORTRAN IV language. For convenience the programme is divided into two parts, a correction version and a prediction version, both of which use the same procedures for calculating the effects of absorption (PHILIBERT-DUNCUMB and SHIELDS-HEINRICH), α - and ß - line fluorescence (REED), atomic number (DUNCUMB and REED), and bremsstrahlung (SPRINGER). The correction version also includes routines that allow for counter dead-time, background, compound standards, and missing data. The prediction version is employed in general to compute calibration curves for systems under frequent investigation and in particular to calculate the compound standard factors that may be required by the correction version of the programme. Both versions are demonstrated using experimental data and typical analytical situations. Notes on the practical use of the programmes are appended"--Abstract, p. i.
