Specac has won the Queen’s Award for International Trade.
The ElvaX ProSpector 3 from Elvatech is the next generation of their hand-held XRF spectrometer series. It weighs just over 1 kg with its battery, which can last for up to 16 hours and the instrument measures 236 × 193 × 68 mm. There are two CCD cameras for macro and micro viewing, combined with an automatic collimator. The instrument body is dustproof and waterproof with an IP-67 protection...
Malvern Panalytical has introduced Epsilon 4, a benchtop XRF spectrometer developed from the Epsilon 3 series. The Epsilon 4 can be placed next to the production line, and most applications can be operated at ambient conditions, reducing costs for helium or vacuum maintenance. The low-drift metal–ceramic x-ray tube, designed and manufactured by Malvern Panalytical, can be used for years...
The EDX-8100 energy dispersive x-ray fluorescence (ED-XRF) spectrometer incorporates a revamped semiconductor detector (SDD) with a special ultra-thin-film window material. An improved detector offers a high fluorescent x-ray count per unit time to increase throughput and provide compatibility with helium purging. When configured with an optional helium purge unit, the EDX-8100 is capable of...
Pentti Minkkinen and Kim Esbensen present case histories and examples all focusing on the potential for economic loss or gain—by following, or more importantly, by not following TOS.
Synchrotron analysis using X-ray spectroscopies shows potentially harmful metals from implants can find their way into human organs.
A combination of synchrotron techniques at the UK’s Diamond Light Source is being used to research the effect of conservation choices on corrosion of iron cannonballs from the Tudor warship, Mary Rose.
A coherent, nanoscale beam of X-rays from a synchrotron source have been used to map chemical reactions happening inside lithium-ion batteries in three dimensions at the nanoscale.
Significant research is underway globally into both improving corrosion protection as well as removing chemicals of concern from existing corrosion protection coatings. This is because the cost of corrosion in developed economies has been consistently shown to lie in the range 2–4% of Gross National Product.
Nanomaterials find widespread applications in many fields of science and nanotechnology, especially as catalysts in the chemical, bio-nanotechnology, nano-electronics and pharmaceutical industries. Understanding the physical and chemical properties of nanoscale materials is important, not only because of the fascinating nature of the subject, but also due to their potential applicability in...
In this article the question of the certification of calibration samples for the characterisation of advanced thin film materials is addressed within the framework of reliable process control or quality management purposes. Reference measurement techniques can be used in order to address the gap in appropriate certified reference materials (CRMs) for thin film analyses. They allow for...
XRF study shows that the plastic used in many second-hand toys could pose a risk to children’s health.
EDAX’s latest revision of its APEX™ Analysis Software is available for both the Element and the Octane Elect energy dispersive spectroscopy systems.
The SESAME light source in Jordan has seen First Monochromatic Light through the XAFS/XRF spectroscopy beamline.
Nuclear resonant vibrational spectroscopy, a new X-ray spectroscopy technique has been used to study enzymes that can produce hydrogen gas, the understanding of their reactions could be important in developing a clean-fuel economy powered by hydrogen.
New office expansion enables Rigaku to grow in Europe with well-equipped application development and demonstration facility.
