Micro-XRF Workshop – University of Warwick, 12/11/18

Come to our Micro-XRF workshop on Monday 12th November 2018 at the University of Warwick to find out about recent developments in element analysis and mapping.

Now that micro-XRF can map light elements down to carbon, as well as samples with topography, there are lots of new possibilities for the technique!

New Developments in Micro-XRF 

Recent developments have opened up a whole new range of applications and possibilities for micro-XRF element mapping.

You can now analyse:

  • Light elements down to carbon – for the first time
  • Samples with topography with increased depth of field and enhanced resolution
  • Vacuum-sensitive materials with a He-purge system
  • Twice as many samples with double the throughput for greater productivity

This brings new possibilities in a whole range of fields, including geology, life science, energy, quality control and materials.

More about light element mapping

The workshop will introduce the new developments, together with the benefits of micro-XRF and how it works. This will be followed by live demonstrations on the Bruker M4 TORNADO – bring your own samples to analyse, see the results and ask any questions you may have.

Micro-XRF in Geology

Light element detection clearly differentiates materials such as fluorite and calcite, which were previously indistinguishable.
