The procedure can also be used to measure very small areas precisely and with a high degree of repeatabiity. The thickness of multiple coatings on top of each other can also be reliably determined using this method. How does the X-ray fluorescence analysis method work? In the X-ray fluorescence analysis procedure the atoms in the tested component are excited via X-ray radiation. This releases electrons in the inner shell of the atoms. The process results in gaps, which are then filled by electrons from the atom shells located further away. The transition of the atoms results in a characteristic fluorescence radiation. This is recorded by a special detector and subsequently used to determine the exact thickness of the applied coating.
