The TOMOX objectives are the acquisition of both X-ray fluorescence and diffraction measurements from a sample in order to perform a no destructive, in situ 3D mapping of the chemical and mineralogical composition of rocks and soils based on x-ray fluorescence (XRF) and diffraction (XRD) mode. We also plan to give hints regarding the rock age by comparing the total contents of Rb and Sr elements with their isotopic compositions which are commonly used for geochronology. Furthermore, we will test the instrument capability for archaeometric applications.
