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.
The Siemens D5000 and Bruker D8 systems we work with have an optional phi-stage that is very useful. It looks and moves like any other rotation stage, but it’s driven by a stepper motor which actually makes it an additional
Much of the material we receive is already finely ground and ready for XRD or XRF analysis, but sometimes we receive bulk material which must be homogenized before we can take a representative split for analysis. This is one of
This project started with a phone call several months ago from a Canadian government lab. They had a very specific application so the design was driven much more by their requirements than most zero-background holder designs. A 1mm deep well
