Thermo Fisher Scientific:: Determination of elemental distribution or heterogeneity by X-ray fluorescence

Although X-ray fluorescence (XRF) is a well-established technique, new areas of applications and performance improvements are being continuously developed. Due to recent advances in X-ray instrumentation and technique, there is a wider choice of solutions available to industries and research laboratories alike depending on the analytical requirements. Recently launched XRF spectrometers integrate the usual elemental analysis capabilities alongside mapping and small spot analyses. This creates an innovative solution for advanced materials characterisation together with unmatched versatility and performance for the analysis of solids and liquids. With small spot analysis and elemental mapping, a new way of elemental evaluation can be used for improved process control, failure analysis and root cause investigations. Read more
