Abstract
THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PHASE I PROGRAM IS TO ESTABLISH THE FEASIBILITY OF A LOW RESOLUTION X-RAY FLUORESCENCE INSTRUMENT FOR MEASUREMENT OF THE CONCENTRATION OF LEAD IN THE AIR. THE INSTRUMENT MUST BE SMALL ENOUGH TO SERVE AS A PERSONAL MONITOR FOR INDOOR FIRING RANGE USERS. PRELIMINARY STUDIES INDICATE THAT A LOW COST, SMALL MONITOR CAN BE BUILT. THE PHASE I PROGRAM WILL COVER DESIGN, FABRICATION, AND TESTING OF ALL COMPONENTS OF THE MONITOR, AND MEASUREMENT OF THE LEAD CONTENT OF SYNTHETIC SAMPLES PREPARED TO SIMULATE SAMPLES DRAWN BY THE INSTRUMENT FROM CLEAN AND CONTAMINATED AIR. A PROTOTYPE LEAD MONITOR WILL BE DESIGNED BASED ON THE PHASE I RESULTS.
