This website contains recent work related to X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry for the purpose of high-resolution core characterisation. It is part of a PhD-project currently executed at Delft University of Technology with financial support of Wintershall Noordzee and TNO. In addition, this website contains a downloadable version and documentation of a software package XELERATE, designed for processing and interpretation of XRF core scanning data acquired with Avaatech ("AvaaXelerate") and Itrax ("ItraXelerate") scanners. The development of this software package was facilitated by Avaatech (www.avaatech.com) and The Dutch Institute of Sea Research (NIOZ) (www.nioz.nl).

I would like to stress that more information and documentation as well as the software is freely available in a protected area of this website. Please create a username and a password to enter this area; we will not sell or distribute your personalia to third parties.
