Graphing software on the XRF and a companion proprietary PC software program (Thermo Scientific NDT[C] Software Suite) were used to observe whether both characteristic L-shell
peaks of lead were present at specific energy levels: 10.5 kiloelectron volts (KeV) for the alpha peak and 12.6 KeV for the beta peak, respectively.

Measurements are performed by using one of four kinds of XRF: two involve fluorescence of the K-shell electrons of Pb (K-XRF), and the other two involve fluorescence of the L-shell
electrons (L-XRF) (Todd et al.
