Abstract: A new K X-ray fluorescent source for calibrating the X or γ-ray multichannel analyzer spectrometer is introduced. A detailed description of the K thorescent source device is given. The calibration method used aud experiiiental results obtained are presented. The purity aud efficiency of K fluorescence photons from this device are discussed. This new fluorescent source may be used as a substitute for radioactive nuclides for the energy-channel calibration of some MCA spectrometers.

Key words: K X-ray fluorescence, Energy-chaunel calibration
