Join us for a 3 hour virtual conference on Thursday 26th November 2020 about scientific techniques for geology in the growing field of green, renewable energy. Overview of the varied… 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.
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.
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 →
A fast and accurate method for iron ore grade control, using the Bruker S8 TIGER WDXRF spectrometer and GEOQUANT.
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.
