    Abstract: In this study, we carried out Particle Induced X-ray Emission (PIXE) analysis of tap water from several houses located in different parts of Borojerd city In Iran. A 2.0 MeV proton beam was employed to excite the samples. The concentration of these elements varied from one month to other depending on session but the average elemental concentrations... Show More
