The Thermo Scientific Niton XL5 Plus handheld XRF analyser helps businesses mitigate risk through the use of X-ray fluorescence technology by providing lab-quality elemental analysis directly in the field.

X-rays reveal reptilian nature of ancient mammals

19 October, 2020 by Lauren Davis

X-ray analysis of 200 million-year-old teeth belonging to some of Earth's earliest mammals suggests they functioned more like reptiles.

X-ray laser to enable nanometre measurements

09 July, 2020

By reducing the beam diameter of an X-ray free-electron laser to 6 nm, researchers bring the utility of these lasers for imaging structures closer to the atomic level.

X-rays can now tell us about soft tissues

03 April, 2020

The advantage is that X-rays can provide much greater resolution than ultrasound — on the order of tens of micrometres (millionths of a metre) instead of millimetres.
