Abstract : A program has been developed to analyze the interelement effects in x-ray fluorescence data for alloys and homogeneous mixtures. Chemical analysis is thereby possible using either a standard of known composition or a set of pure-element standards. The program was tested on copper-silver binary alloys. The agreement was excellent for the silver calculation but unacceptable for copper. However, the copper calibration agreed with an independent computer calculation from a different source. These results indicate that the data may be improved in subsequent work. (Author)
