The extrapolation method is applied to the determination of the absorption free kANI factors, (kANI)0, in thin-film X-ray microanalysis where A=Al(Kα), Ti(Kα), Mo(Kα, Lα), Ta(Lα, Mα) and W(Lα, Mα). The relationships of log kANI vs. tM and log kAN, vs. INI are observed for this determination, where tM Is the foil thickness measured by the contamination spot separation method and INI is the characteristic X-ray Intensity of NiKα. The theoretical KANI factors are calculated to compare with the extrapolated values. The advantages of the extrapolation method and the practical conditions required for the method are described in detail.
