The 2017 Pittsburgh Spectroscopy Award has been made to Edward I. Solomon.
Diamond Light Source has welcomed the first users to the hard X-ray nanoprobe beamline (I14), the latest phase III beamline to be opened.
Shimadzu has released the first EDX-FT-IR contaminant finder/material inspector, which integrates and analyses data acquired from both an ED XRF spectrometer and a FT-IR spectrophotometer.
EDAX adds a new Octane Elect energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) system to its existing line of EDS instruments
Princeton Instruments’ SOPHIA-XO:2048 is a high-speed, ultra-low-noise camera
X-ray spectroscopy techniques have some advantages over other atomic spectroscopy techniques in the analysis of foods, for instance in not requiring significant sample preparation. Amongst these, TXRF has higher sensitivity and limits of detection in the ng range. The authors look at the analysis of a number of very different foods, including seafood, honey and vegetables.
X-ray images and XANES reveal battery materials’ chemical reactions in five dimensions: 3D space plus time and energy.
Thermo Scientific have introduced Pathfinder X-ray microanalysis software.
Spectro Analytical Instruments have announced an upgrade of the Spectro xSort handheld X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrometer.
Swiss researchers improve an interferometry technique by utilising the interference fringe, an aspect previously viewed as a nuisance, and increase the efficiency of X-ray flux.
An international research team has shown, using XRF that the iron in Tutankhamun’s dagger blade is of meteoritic origin.
Researchers from Leiden and Delft are using Macro X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (MA-XRF) to read remains of medieval manuscripts hidden inside the bindings which had been “recycled” after the Middle Ages.
Rigaku’s ZSX Primus IV is a tube-above, wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorscence spectrometer with improved functionality and performance.
Rigaku has published a new application report describing the analysis of low-alloy steel using a benchtop wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) spectrometer.
Spectro have published a white paper explaining why overcoming matrix effects associated with X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis is critical to achieving consistent high-accuracy results..
Spectro Analytical Instruments have introduced a new line of Spectro Xepos spectrometers with improved sensitivity.
Andor Technology has introduced the new iKon-XL “open-front” (‘SO’) 16-Megapixel CCD camera platform for vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) and soft X-ray direct detection.
An international group of scientists from Poland, Austria and the UK have used X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectroscopy at the UK’s Diamond Light Source to advance our understanding of the changes taking place during the progression of brain cancer. This research may lead the way to a new tumour assessment method which could complement traditional approaches.
Raman, FT-IR and ED XRF discover interesting detail of the dying in the 19th century, and maybe about trade links between Europe and Australia.
