Last Month's Most Accessed Feature: X-ray toys: Toxic contaminants

X-ray fluorescence spectrometry has been used by British scientists to analyse the presence of elements within individual plastic toys. The study reveals worrying levels of bromine, cadmium, lead, and other chronically toxic elements that might leach from broken toys chewed or inadvertently swallowed by a child.

Melting in the heat: Atomic movie

David Bradley

Jul 15, 2018

US researchers have used a high energy source to carry out an investigation of the heterogeneous to homogeneous melting transition. The visualization based on ultrafast electron diffraction improves our understanding of how metals melt and could be used to guide the design of extreme engineering systems such as fusion power reactors, steel processing plants, and spacecraft.

CT scans were carried out on a bystander claimed to have been shot by a police officer to match qualitative and quantitative aspects of the unremoved bullet with police issued 9 mm Luger ammunition.

Early photography based on the daguerreotype method used silver plates. Unfortunately some of the oldest known photographic artefacts have faded with the years. Now a team in Canada has demonstrated that they can use a synchrotron light source to carry out rapid-scanning micro-X-ray fluorescence imaging of daguerreotypes and reveal the latent, long-since faded image.

Education

rss

Selected key technologies of the analytical science industry are discussed by Steve Down with reference to burgeoning application areas and the scope for future improvements.

We are proud to announce a new series of educational webinars run in collaboration with Chromedia, COAST, and SciMind, a product of the American Chemical Society. These webinars will build into a must-have set of tutorial materials for the analytical scientist.

In this article, the late Ron Jenkins, formerly of the International Center for Diffraction Data provides a brief but comprehensive overview of modern X-ray techniques.
