In this study we successfully applied the zeta-factor method to perform quantitative X-ray analysis of organic thin films consisting of light elements. With its ability to intrinsically correct for X-ray absorption, this method significantly improved the quality of the quantification as well as the accuracy of the results compared to conventional techniques in particular regarding the quantification of light elements. We describe in detail the process of determining sensitivity factors (zeta-factors) using a single standard specimen and the involved parameter optimization for the estimation of C-factors for elements not contained in the standard. The C-factor method was then applied to perform quantitative analysis of organic semiconducting materials frequently used in organic electronics. Finally, the results were verified and discussed concerning validity and accuracy. (C) 2013 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
