X-Ray Diffraction (XRD)

XRD is the only laboratory technique that reveals structural information, such as chemical composition, crystal structure, crystallite size, strain, preferred orientation and layer thickness. Materials researchers therefore use XRD to analyze a wide range of materials, from powders and solids to thin films and nanomaterials.

[5 Dec 2017 | ]

It was my great pleasure to present as part of the Worcestershire Innovation Network at their WINN Wednesday event on the 22nd of November, showcasing the best in innovation across Worcestershire.
This included a local company which makes artificial kneecaps and hips, an insight into the building of genomics studies of patients with rare diseases and cancers, an update on the appeal to get a state-of-the-art surgical robot for removal of prostate tumors (reducing discomfort, scarring and hospital stay post-operation). Jess Antley, head of WINN, also gave an update on a new shared space/collaboration …

Aeris, Customer experience, X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) »

[9 Nov 2017 | ]

I recently had the pleasure to visit a new Aeris customer in Orlando, FL – Louis C. Herring Laboratory. This service lab has been in business for over 60 years, specializing in the analysis of kidney stones, also known as urinary calculi. What I found amazing about this site is that their Aeris actually replaced a Philips Analytical PW1840 system, our first generation benchtop XRD produced in the early 1980s. Their PW1840 ran for three decades, amassing over 41,000 hours of operating time and requiring little to no service through …
