With microdiffraction you can analyse smaller spots in-situ without grinding to a powder, for information that can be missed by powder analysis.
Visit us at MDSG 2019 (Mineral Deposits Study Group conference) in Cornwall on 2-4 January 2019.
In micro-CT 3D X-ray imaging, regions of interest are not always simple or regular. Often you need to select more complex regions. These ROIs can be selected automatically using two… read more →
It’s now much easier to achieve high quality results with SEM-based cathodoluminescence, with the new Gatan Monarc. This has valuable applications in geology and geoscience, for rocks and minerals analysis.
Unique features from Renishaw for mapping large areas quickly and at high resolution with Raman spectroscopy.
How to acquire large element distribution maps at high resolution, with the Bruker M4 TORNADO and Bruker M6 JETSTREAM micro-XRF spectrometers.
How to analyse elemental distribution in rocks with XRF. In this case study we look at columbite-tantalite (coltan) in rocks from Canada, with the Bruker S8 TIGER Series 2 WDXRF… read more →
How Raman spectroscopy can be used as an analytical tool in geology and mineralogy, and how it can be combined with SEM for structural and chemical analysis.
An overview of micro-CT applications in geology, for studying porosity, mineral distribution and structure in rock samples and drill cores.
Micro-XRF has many applications in geology for elemental and mineral analysis, and is faster and more cost-effective than alternative methods.
