    Abstract

    Elemental analysis is a necessary approach to the characterization of physical evidence in forensic science laboratories [1]. There are many wet chemical and instrumental methods in use; however, with few exceptions, these techniques are difficult to apply, have considerable sample size or preparation constraints, are time consuming, or are destructive. Energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) spectrometry does not have these disadvantages [2,3].
