With the wide energy range of our hard x-ray spectrometers, all of the 3d transition metals from Ti to Zn can be measured. These elements are crucial in critical areas of modern research from batteries to catalysis, environmental remediation, and more.
We make spectroscopy easy.
Synchrotron quality data in your own lab
Our high-performance spectrometers provide measurements with synchrotron-quality resolution in minutes. While the most challenging measurements requiring the highest flux will always be best served by the impressive capabilities of synchrotron beamlines, laboratory capabilities provide routine access to these powerful techniques without compromising on energy resolution.
X-ray Emission Spectroscopy (XES):
A growing technique
In addition to x-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS), easyXAFS instruments are also capable of x-ray emission spectroscopy (XES), which is essentially very-high energy resolution x-ray fluorescence (XRF).
At energy resolutions comparable to the core-hole lifetimes of the electron transitions, XES goes beyond simple quantification and gives information on features such as oxidation state and ligand identity. XAFS and XES give complementary views into the local electronic structure of samples.
