Continuum background X-ray spectra from an Al target bombarded with protons of 3, 6, 9, and 12 MeV have been measured with a Si(Li) detector. On the basis of the measured background spectra and K and L X-ray production cross sections, the detection limit of PIXE has been estimated. The merits of PIXE using protons of 3-6 MeV are discussed.
