Abstract

The deconvolution procedure based on the maximum-entropy method is applied to improve both resolution and noise characteristics of micro-PIXE maps. The procedure is simple to execute, fast, easily automated and assumes no a priori information. The best improvement is observed for data with low statistics. Special emphasis is given to the difficulties and limitations of processing micro-PIXE data. Examples of applications for biomedical samples are presented.
