Proton Induced X-ray Emission Technique (PIXE) has been used in analyzing Gold standards of 22, 20, 18, and 14 karats with a proton beam of Energy 3.3 MeV at the newly commissioned Folded Tandem Ion Accelerator (FOTIA) at B.A.R.C, Trombay. Well resolved Au and Ag X-rays were detected at a current of 3 nA. Percentage values of gold and silver were calculated and were checked with those obtained by Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (EDXRF) Method and were found to be in agreement with the certified values as well as those obtained by XRF.
