Element / phase analysis and molecular structure

X-ray analytical methods have a long history as important tools to investigate and establish facts in criminal or civil courts of law to analyze, identify or compare unknown materials. Small spot X-ray fluorescence (XRF) is a non-destructive method to determine concentration and distribution of chemical elements such as Pb and Cu residue from bullet holes in clothing, for example. X-ray diffraction (XRD) can identify chemical phases in complete unknowns. Both techniques allow standardless quantification of element concentrations and phase composition. Rigaku's Raman spectrometers provide the industry’s most comprehensive tool for fast and reliable chemical identification, CBRNe detection and narcotics classification in a simple and easy-to-use handheld form.
