- ChromatographyMolecular mass and composition analysis
- NMR and Micro-CTStructural analysis and 3D tomography
Energy-dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDX)
EDX provides in-situ, site-specific elemental identification. This can be used for fast point measurements to check the composition of a certain feature or for mapping out the distribution of all the different elements in a region of interest. Ideal for identifying contaminants and inclusions.
- Oxford instruments INCA x-sight detector.
- Qualitative and quantitative measurements.
- Point & ID for localised elemental analysis.
- Mapping for visualising the distribution of different elements and distinguishing between features.
