Rigaku will be in showcase its XRM and CT technology at the 2016 International X-ray Microscopy Conference
Rigaku Corporation, a global leader in X-ray analytical technology, will be presenting its lines of X-ray microscopy and computed tomography instrumentation at the 2016 X-Ray Microscopy Conference ( XRM2016), Monday, August 15, through Friday, August 19, 2016 at the University of Oxford in the U.K.
X-ray microscopy and computed tomography equipment from Rigaku enable nondestructive analysis of large samples at high resolution.
X-ray microscopy (XRM) is suited to all kinds of materials, from low-density materials such as biological samples to high-density materials such as ceramics and steels. Computed tomography (CT) reveals, at high-speed, the high-resolution, three dimensional structure of an object by means of computer-processed combinations of numerous X-ray images taken from different angles.
The International Conference on X-Ray Microscopy will bring together experts in the development and use of X-ray microscopes and will address recent advances in X-ray microscopy and its applications via a dynamic program of discussions and posters. XRM 2016 will be the 13th conference in the X-ray Microscopy series, which began in 1983.
Since its inception in Japan in 1951, Rigaku has been at the forefront of analytical and industrial instrumentation technology. Rigaku and its subsidiaries form a global group focused on general-purpose analytical instrumentation and the life sciences. With hundreds of major innovations to their credit, Rigaku companies are world leaders in X-ray spectrometry, diffraction, and optics, as well as small molecule and protein crystallography and semiconductor metrology.
