To determine the composition of alloy thin films it is necessary to know their thickness. In the present work the possibility of composition determination without knowing the exact thickness is theoretically discussed. A method based on determination of the ratio of intensities of the elements present in the film is proposed. The results were experimentally tested on nickelchromium thin films.
