K X-ray fluorescence cross-sections of zinc (Zn) in linear region and infinite mass thickness region are measured using Si(Li) detector at photon excitation energy of 59.5 keV. Besides, this study has investigated the effect of experimental fluorescence cross-sections on relation between two different mass thickness of the sample with different applied pressures. Harmony between linear and infinitive (critical) mass thickness region and applied pressure on sample has direct effect on experimental Ka and Kb X-ray peaks. Experimental results were compared with various theoretical values in literature.


Key words: Sample prepare, pressure effect, X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy.
