An experiment was carried out to verify a previously described linear relationship between ln(fluorescent intensity ratio of analyte to pure analyte/concentration of analyte) and ln(fluorescent energy) or, mathematically, ln(<i>I</i><sub><i>i</i></sub>/<i>c</i><sub><i>i</i></sub><i>I</i><sub><i>i</i></sub><sup>0</sup> = <i>a</i> ln(<i>E</i><sub><i>i</i></sub>) + <i>b</i>. The best fit to our experimental data for elements from manganese to molybdenum for porcelain matrix is given by ln(<i>I</i><sub><i>i</i></sub>/<i>c</i><sub><i>i</i></sub><i>I</i><sub><i>i</i></sub><sup>0</sup> = 2.401 ln(<i>E</i><sub><i>i</i></sub>) - 8.701 with a value of the gradient in agreement with the theoretical prediction.
