X-ray fluorescence has been in use for elemental analysis for a long time. Characteristic X-rays are emitted after excitation with photons originating from radioactive sources or X-ray tubes. More recently, synchrotron radiation has been introduced as an excitation source. The high brightness of this excitation source enables X-ray microprobes to be produced. Advantages and limitations of these microprobes are discussed and some comparisons will be made to ion microprobes for elemental analysis. Moreover, an overview is given of the techniques used to produce the X-ray microprobes available at present.
