XRD and XRF analysis are a fascinating corner of the scientific world. We work across a broad range of industries from cutting-edge research to quality assurance labs and we’ve learned from all of them. We’ll use this area to share these experiences as well as pertinent news from KS Analytical Systems.
XRD tubes rely on the ability to precisely regulate the flow of electrons from the filament to the anode in order to create x-ray emissions. That requires a completely evacuated envelope to avoid having the high-voltage short to ground. The
Curiosity may have killed the cat, but it’s the lifeblood of a well-functioning analytical lab. A few days ago, Todd was preparing a water chiller for shipping and washed out some corrosion products with acetic acid. The resulting solution was
Plastic sample holders have been the default option XRD for decades. They’re inexpensive to make, good enough for most purposes, and very resistant to a wide range of chemicals. Seems like a “win” all around right? As long as they’re
