How does a lithium boarte bead stabilize itself after xrf excitation?

  1. Oct 6, 2012 #1
    My probelms is thus:

    I have a numerous samples that my company runs and I am trying to figure out how the lithium borate fusion of samples like silicon dioxide or Fe-Ti stabilize after excitation from xray to fluores. Becasue the way I would think is that the smaple/LiT is stable before excitation and after the loss of electrons from the sample through fluorescence, there is a slight positive charge on the samples that has been excited and the smaples that has not will shift its electron clouds around to compensate.

    Any thoughts?
