TOPIQ | The Advantages of Indirect Excitation EDXRF

The Rigaku EDXRF product line is introduced and the NEX CG is featured using indirect excitation. The basic ideas of direct and indirect excitation for optimum excitation and background removal are reviewed. Cartesian geometry indirect excitation together with Rigaku Scattering FP makes NEX CG ideal for the optimum measurement of complex applications where the base matrix can vary substantially, such as animal feeds, soils and the analysis of nutrient uptake in plant materials

RFA – Eine schnelle, einfache Methode zur Bestimmung von Elementkonzentrationen in petrochemischen Proben

Die Röntgenfluoreszenzanalyse (RFA) ist eine der wichtigsten instrumentellen, analytischen Methoden unserer Zeit. Mit ihr lassen sich einfach und schnell Elementkonzentrationen im Bereich von wenigen ppm bis zu 100% zuverlässig analysieren.

TOPIQ | How to Improve Crystal Structure Models by TAAM Refinement

Independent atom model (IAM) of scattering used to refine crystal structure from diffraction data was very successful in crystallography over the past 100 years. Nowadays, with better equipment and higher computation power, more accurate scattering models can be used. Transferable Aspherical Atom Model (TAAM) takes into account aspherical electron density deformations and partial charge transfer occurring due to chemical bond formation, lone pairs presence and other phenomena.

Rigaku School for Practical Crystallography – Asia Pacific

A lot of younger members of the scientific community will be missing out on some opportunities to learn crystallography at schools and conferences this summer, so you are invited to a series of ten tuition-free 1-hour webinars on practical aspects of X-ray crystallography. The majority of the time will be spent on small molecule crystallography, but we will also air sessions on macromolecular crystallography and powder diffraction. This is a great opportunity for people who are interested in crystallography to gain a basic foundation of single crystal analysis from a practical point of view.

X-ray Computed Tomography for Materials and Life Science: Geology Applications

A number of X-ray CT application examples of geological samples will be discussed. Examples include the analysis of cracks, pores, inclusions, and phase quantification of rocks and drill cores. We will introduce available resources for pore network analysis that can be applied to rock CT scans.
