Micro-XRF Laboratory

JXA-8530F Electron Microprobe

This laboratory consists of a Bruker M4 Tornado micro-XRF instrument. This technique requires little to no sample preparation, and can provide both elemental composition point analysis, and element mapping at the micron scale.

Point analysis
Quickly determine the elements present, and quantify them.

Element mapping Determine the variability of the elements within a sample.

Samples Accommodated:

♦ Large stage can accommodate samples up to 190 mm x 160 mm

♦ drill core, hand samples, thin sections

♦ For best results samples should be flat, polished, and clean
