you can find well presented and detailed discussions on detection limits
and counting statistics in:
Jenkins, Gould & Gedcke 1995: Quantitative x-ray spectrometry. 2nd
ed.,Dekker, New York, ISBN 0-8247-9554-7
Bertin 1984: Priciples and practice of x-ray spectrometric analysis. 4nd
A good web link is the microprobe web page of James Wittke:
