Recent development, present state and expected future developments in energy-dispersive X-ray spectrometry are discussed. Attention is paid to the improvements in analytical selectivity, sensitivity, detection limit, quantitative character and applicability range, which are the result of new or better excitation sources, detectors, instrument design, automation, computer software and theoretical developments.
