Take a quick video tour of the OmegaScope AFM-Raman from AIST-NT. The OmegaScope is based on AIST-NT's Smart-SPM, and features either single or 3 laser Raman capabilities and an objective lens up to 100x magnification.
This video shows the inauguration of HORIBA Europe Research Center. This state-of-the-art center will continue the long-held tradition of innovation that was started in 1819 with the establishment of HORIBA.
This is the first time the PANalytical Epsilon 3XL benchtop XRF has been shown as it was only released in January 2011. The Epsilon 3XL can perform elemental analysis down to Fluorine. It is suited to lower throughput applications like production control applications, but is capable of producing results comparable to larger more expensive floor standing XRF units.
