It is necessary to measure low concentrations of chromium using a spectrometer equipped with a chromium anode X-ray tube. A titanium filter can be fitted over the tube window to minimize the intensity of the Cr Kα radiation arising from the scattered tube radiation. Two thicknesses of titanium are available, at 0.13 mm and 0.011 mm.
