In this paper it was described on the standards for Xe analysis by Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Spectrometer (WDS) of Electron Probe Micro Analyser. According to the experimental results, CsI and $BaCO_3$ are appropriate compounds as standard specimen for Cs, I and Ba which has not suitable pure metal standards. In the beam current of 10-30 nA range, the Cs x-ray intensity measured from CsBr and CsI was proportional to the beam current. It was found that the linear regression factor R, showing the linearity between the atomic number and x-ray intensity between In and Nd elements, was higher than 0.99 at 25 kV and PET crystal. The caJlculated x-ray intensity of Xe standard from this linear regression equation was 1.095 times higher than that ofTe at 25 kV.
