now used routinely by geologists, archaeologists, art conservators and others to help answer questions of provenance, dating and authenticity. X-rays of a characteristic energy of the element are emitted. Alexander Pines while they were graduate students in the lab. A related technique, particle-induced gamma-ray emission (pige) can be used to detect some light elements. This technique, called micropixe, can be used to determine the distribution of trace elements in a wide range of samples.
When a material is exposed to an ion beam, atomic interactions occur that give off. 3, in the penis technique, the natural polarization of an abundant spin ( 1H, the "proton" which begins the name of the technique) is exploited to increase the polarization of a rare spin (such as 13C ) by irradiating the sample with radio waves. Proton transmission edit, the transmission of protons through a sample can also be used to get information about the sample. 6 Proton beam writing edit Proton beams can be used for writing ( proton beam writing ) through either the hardening of a polymer (by proton induced cross-linking or through the degradation of a proton sensitive material. Pines,.; Gibby,.G.; Waugh,.S. The penis technique was patented in 1972. Journal of the American Chemical Society.
