Horiba Jobin Yvon presents two systems for high resolution microscopy. The XGT-7000 represents a completely new generation of XRF microscope. It offers a seamless merger between optical observation and elemental analysis functions. Unique hardware features ensure the system offers versatility and flexibility for every measurement. A choice of two software controlled x-ray guide tubes with diameters ranging from a unique 10 µm through to 1.2 mm allow conditions to be optimised for a range of measurements, including both micro and macro. moreNov. 05, 2009
The XuM is an SEM-hosted high resolution x-ray microscope which provides an internal view of the structure of samples without cross-sectioning. Providing 2D, stereo and full 3D tomographic imaging, the XuM adds the third dimension to scanning electron microscopy. moreNov. 05, 2009
X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) is a high-tech, non-destructive technique for analyzing a wide range of materials. Throughout industry and research institutions, XRD has become an indispensable method for materials investigation, characterization and quality control. Example areas of application include over others, qualitative and quantitative phase analysis, crystallography, structure and relaxation determination, micro-diffraction, nano-materials, lab- and process automation, and high-throughput polymorph screening. moreNov. 05, 2009
With adequate SPM probes and measuring modes it is possible to record a wide variety of different sample characteristics. You may see other terms in association with SPM techniques, such as AFM (Atomic Force Microscopy), STM (Scanning Tunneling Microscopy), etc. The Bruker Nano Nanos is capable of all of these techniques. moreNov. 04, 2009
The SkyScan 1173 is a high energy micro-CT scanner for large and dense objects. The SkyScan 1173 system includes a newly developed 130kV microfocus X-ray source with improved stability of focal spot position, a large format (>5Mp) flat panel sensor with special protection by lead-glass fiber-optic window for long lifetime under high-energy X-ray, a precision object manipulator for large (up to 150mm) and heavy (several kg) objects with embedded micropositioning stage. moreNov. 04, 2009
EDAX has introduced the Orbis micro-XRF elemental analyzer system, setting a new standard in analytical flexibility. Building on more than 10 years of micro-XRF experience, the Orbis spectrometer incorporates a motorized turret that integrates video and X-ray optics allowing coaxial sample view and X-ray analysis.
Two additional X-ray collimators can be added to the optical turret for a total of three X-ray beam sizes to expand Orbis' analytical capabilities beyond traditional micro-XRF analysis. moreNov. 03, 2009
Olympus has introduced the new CX21LED clinical microscope with built-in light emitting diode (LED) illumination. Offering consistent long-term performance for biological and medical applications, this cost-effective imaging system can illuminate samples with a similar light intensity to that provided by halogen bulbs. Furthermore, the LED light source produces a more uniform, controllable and stable illumination for high-quality imaging. As an environmentally-friendly and easy-to-use system, this microscope is also ideal for educational use. moreNov. 03, 2009
Specialised Imaging has announced a technological innovation for its SIR2 camera that enables researchers to accurately record and analyse projectiles with unpredictable velocities. Traditionally recording images of high-speed projectiles with unpredictable velocity has been very unreliable. Using the input from two separate sensors, a measured distance apart, fed into the two inputs of the SIR2 camera - the new proprietary SureShot real-time hardware is able to capture unpredictable high-speed projectiles mid frame - first time, every time.
