How APT (Atom Probe Tomography) and SIMS can be used in the fields of geology and geoscience, with examples from geochronology, mining and meteorite research.
Join us for a 3 hour virtual conference on Thursday 26th November 2020 at 10:30am GMT / 11:30 CET about scientific techniques for geology in the growing field of green,… read more →
In new research about the origin of water on Earth, SIMS analysis has revealed that enstatite meteorites contain sufficient hydrogen for at least three times the mass of water in… read more →
How the Geological Survey of Finland (GTK) used Raman spectroscopy to study graphitisation temperature and measure graphite crystallinity, relevant to battery development.
How to analyse mineral composition with micro-XRF, to understand the origin and formation of rocks in geoscience. This information is useful in various fields of geology and mining, including aluminium,… read more →
Using Bruker’s watershed algorithm to separate grain-based materials with X-ray micro-CT – ideal for powders, fibres, geological samples, pharmaceuticals and more.
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.
