The major components PbO and WO3 in PWO crystals, Bi2O3 and GeO2 in BGO crystals, as well as Gd, La, Nb, Mg, Mo, Bi, Sb and Y doped in PWO crystals and Eu doped in BGO crystals were successfully determined with X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF) using fusion techniques. Calibration standards were synthesized with high-purity oxides and standard solutions. The analysis results can meet the general requirements of the quality control of the crystal growth and research purpose. The relative… CONTINUE READING
