Innovative X-Ray Diffraction Technologies from inXitu
This short video details how inXitu
have used funding from NASA and other government bodies to develop innovative
x-ray diffraction (XRD) technologies for the analysis of materials both terrestrial
They have developed technology that is being used on the NASA 2009 Mars science
lab mission. A by-product of this is a portable XRD instrument called "Terra"
that can be taken on site to perform materials analysis.
Other technologies that they are working on are a portable NDT examination
tool for examining artworks in situ, a baggage screening system and an air purification
technology using carbon nanotubes for cathodes for future space missions.
