3D structure / imaging

Computed Tomography (CT) has been a well-established technology in medical diagnostics for decades. In the past few years, industrial 3D imaging has become a very powerful nondestructive analytical methods. It can provide detailed information about the object of interest, e.g. its structure, composition, defect/pore sizes and their distribution.

When performed correctly, fusion is the sample preparation technique that leads to the obtention of the most precise and accurate XRF and ICP analytical results. Among all factors that need to be considered to get great glass disks or solutions and therefore excellent analysis, the choice of flux is one of the most important.
Let’s discover why.
An Indispensable Chemical
The flux forms the matrix of the disk analyzed by the spectrometer. It must melt before the sample dissolves into it. An adequate flux allows to:

Optimize the solubility of the sample and …

For quality and process control many elemental analysis techniques are available. Let’s see how ICP, AAS, ICP-MS, ICP-OES and X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF) stack up are traditional techniques used in many industries. Each of these techniques has a number of advantages and disadvantages giving the analyst the flexibility to choose which technology suits best. When the required limits of quantification are above 1 ppm (µg/g), or when the non-destructive analysis is required, XRF is a very attractive technique that should be considered, especially when analyzing solids, powders, slurries, filters, and …
