X-ray fluorescence sources were prepared and their emission rates certified with an accuracy of better than 2%. The sources were standardised using a gas-flow proportional counter in a defined low-solid-angle setup. They were used for the efficiency calibration of a Si(Li) detector at the characteristic K X-ray energies of Al, P, S, Cl, Ca and Ti.
