A Rigaku SmartLab X-ray diffractometer (XRD) has been installed at CSIRO's Waite Campus in Adelaide, where it will aid in mineralogical and geochemical characterisation research.
When it comes to X-ray analysis, one might think of techniques like XRD, XRF and radiography. However, another technique that uses X-rays is residual stress analysis.
Swiss researchers have developed a new design for X-ray spectrometers that lowers overall production costs and increases the efficiency of X-ray flux.
Forensic researchers have established science-based standards for identifying human remains based on X-rays of an individual's spine, upper leg or the side of the skull.
PANalytical has announced a dedicated solution for the analysis of very low chlorine concentrations in crude oils. Epsilon 3XLE, an XRF benchtop system, has been equipped to meet the analytical challenges of the petrochemical industry.
Professor Itai Einav and his researchers use experimental, theoretical and computer program models to predict how granular materials behave under various conditions.
A team comprising Australian, German and Slovak researchers has combined different microscopy modalities together into a single instrument, using a lab-sized X-ray source as opposed to resorting to synchrotron radiation.
The Rigaku NANOHUNTER II benchtop total reflection X-ray fluorescence (TXRF) spectrometer enables high-sensitivity ultratrace elemental analysis, in liquids or on solid surfaces, to the parts-per-billion (ppb) level.
Applied Rigaku Technologies has published a new method for the analysis of lead-zinc ore using the empirical calibration technique. The method demonstrates the use of the Rigaku NEX CG benchtop EDXRF analyser in the trace elemental analysis of ores.
AXT has installed the Rigaku SmartLab — claimed to be Australia's highest powered X-ray diffractometer (XRD) — at the Centre for Microscopy and Microanalysis, The University of Queensland.
The Rigaku NEX DE is a direct excitation energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) elemental analyser. Engineered for heavy industrial use, whether on the plant floor or in remote field environments, the analyser was developed to maximise flexibility and ease of use.
Exclusive computed tomography (CT) images reveal an in-depth look at one of the best preserved Tyrannosaurus rex skulls ever found.
US scientists have developed a new method to reduce uncertainty in X-ray wavelength measurement, in what is said to be the first major advance since the 1970s in reducing sources of error common in X-ray angle measurement.
AXT has won a competitive tender to supply a high-end X-ray diffractometer (XRD) to The University of Queensland (UQ). The system that won the tender is a 9 kW Rigaku SmartLab featuring a rotating anode X-ray generator.
While there is absolutely no scientific evidence that crystals can be used to predict the future or provide protection or healing, they play a critical role in establishing the structure of matter.
