About GUPIX and GUPIXWIN
GUPIXWIN is a versatile software package for fitting PIXE spectra from thin, thick, intermediate and layered specimens. It extracts peak intensities and converts these to concentrations via the H-value standardization method. X-ray excitation may be via protons, deuterons, He-3 or He-4 ions; X-ray spectrometry may be via Si(Li) or Ge detectors. Interactive or batch processing may be selected.
In either its earlier GUPIX form or in the newer GUPIXWIN form, this software has been supplied to about 140 ion beam analysis laboratories in 30 countries. GUPIX has been tested extensively using various standard reference materials and inter-comparisons.
The Windows version GUPIXWIN became available in version 1.1 on
