Micro XRF (X-Ray Fluorescence) Product Range from Bruker XRD
Michael Haschke from Bruker
AXS shows us thorugh their new range of Micro XRF (X-Ray Fluorescence) instruments.
He shows us 3 instruments that vary in chamber size, with the largest able to
take samples 30cm in diameter and offering vacuum analysis and a motorized stage
for line scans and area analysis.
The instruments use similar physics and use a spot size of 25micons allowing
spot analysis, which differs from conventional XRF instruments which analyze
large areas. They are also able to analyze coating thicknesses and changes in
composition as a function opf coating depth.
Micro XRF is a non-destructive testing technique providing elemental analysis suited to applications including,
forensics, art, failure analysis, microelectronics etc.
