A virtual event on 9-10 November 2021 from RMS about microscopic imaging and microanalysis of geological and archaeological materials (free to attend).
Studying Crystal Orientation in Geology with Cathodoluminescence Polarisation-Filtered Spectrum Imaging
Cathodoluminescence can be used to study crystal structure orientation – in this example we look at how it can be used on a geological sample.
The Swedish Museum of Natural History used SIMS to determine that rock samples from India were formed around 1,850 million years ago. Previously it was thought that dating this type of sample wasn’t possible!
Precise, accurate trace analysis of geological materials including rocks, minerals & soils with the Bruker S8 TIGER Series 2 WD_XRF & GEO-QUANT Traces, a dedicated solution package.
How APT (Atom Probe Tomography) and SIMS can be used in the fields of geology and geoscience, with examples from geochronology, mining and meteorite research.
Join us for a 3 hour virtual conference on Thursday 26th November 2020 at 10:30am GMT / 11:30 CET about scientific techniques for geology in the growing field of green, renewable energy. Overview of the varied scientific techniques available in this field. See what insights they can offer. Educative conference with presentations from academics, supported […]
In new research about the origin of water on Earth, SIMS analysis has revealed that enstatite meteorites contain sufficient hydrogen for at least three times the mass of water in the oceans. The research at CRPG Nancy (Research Center Pétrographiques Et Géochimiques) in France used SIMS technology from CAMECA. Blue Scientific is the official distributor […]
How the Geological Survey of Finland (GTK) used Raman spectroscopy to study graphitisation temperature and measure graphite crystallinity, relevant to battery development.
How to analyse mineral composition with micro-XRF, to understand the origin and formation of rocks in geoscience. This information is useful in various fields of geology and mining, including aluminium, steel, gold and diamonds. Blue Scientific is the official distributor for Bruker Micro-XRF in the UK, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Iceland. For more information or […]
Using Bruker’s watershed algorithm to separate grain-based materials with X-ray micro-CT – ideal for powders, fibres, geological samples, pharmaceuticals and more.
