X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) Laboratory

Offering Forensic Chemical Analysis, Elemental Identification, and More

Our X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry Labs offer one of the most common methods for the determining the atomic elements in a material. H&M utilizes three types of instruments – Wavelength Dispersive XRF (WDXRF) and Energy Dispersive XRF (EDXRF) for bulk analysis and an SEM mounted EDXRF unit for thin films.

Among the capabilities are:

  • Analysis of Na – U with 10ppm detection limit
  • Elemental mapping is available
  • Analysis of solids, powders and liquids
  • Pressed pellets and glass beads can be prepared
  • Semi-quantitative analysis is routine by a Fundamental Parameters approach.
  • Full quantitative analysis requires use of standards

Chemical Analysis of Iron Ore, Concrete, Alloys and More

XRF is an ideal tool for a wide range of applications, including:

  • Forensic Chemical Analysis
  • Alloy identification
  • Identification of impurities
  • Identification of trace elements
  • Minerals and Ores
  • Concrete, Cement and Clinker
  • Catalysts
  • Forensics
