We have used an X-ray fluorescence method stimulated by synchrotron radiation (XFA SR) to study the detection limit of element analysis for all elements in the samples of atmospheric aerosols. The dependence of the detection limit on the method of sampling has been revealed. We have experimentally verified the distribution of the background fluctuations to be normal.
