The plot above shows the absorption for each input element and for the specified composition as a function of X-ray wavelength/energy. The blue dotted line indicates a muR value of 1. In a capillary (Debye-Scherrer) geometry, it is ideal when muR is 1 or below, as sample absorption is minimal and no correction is usually needed. The red dotted line indicates a muR value of 5. For muR >= 5, measurements are generally not possible in a capillary geometry, as there will be very severe levels of absorption and corrections are inaccurate.
