PIXE is a bulk method which excludes the possibility to examine the heterogeneity of the ceramic fabric, technological aspects apart from bulk composition and, crucially, elemental analysis of the ceramic body (for a PIXE application to analyse the coating and ceramic fabric separately, see Leon et al.

In order to verify the authenticity of the date, the sur face of the enamel was analysed by means of beams of ions with PIXE and PIGME metals (respectively, particle-induced x and gamma rays) using the AGLAE accelerator at the C2RMF.
PIXE showed that the total sulfur concentration was reduced, thereby increasing the copper/sulfur and zinc/sulfur ratios, and XPS showed that the oxygen concentration was increased, thus promoting zinc oxide formation.

Surprisingly, a new study using both laser ablation ICPMS and PIXE PIGME has sourced the most distant stemmed tool, from Biak Island (Friede 2005: II, 86; Figures 2 and 11) to the Umleang obsidian source on Lou Island, in Manus province (Figure 11) and represents the first evidence that this source was in use during the mid-Holocene (Torrence et al.
