The X-ray spectrometry channel covers all aspects of research into techniques using X-ray fluorescence (XRF), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and crystallography used in material science, protein analysis, art and archaeology research, environmental analysis, biotechnology and pharmaceutical analysis.
Quality is of extreme importance for labs. However, it is often seen as the responsibility of the quality manager and its importance and impact on your own work is not always well understood. In this webinar, Peter Kootstra will reinforce how quality can improve your performance and your work satisfaction.Read More
In experiments using X-ray angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy, US researchers have discovered a new quantum effect that enables electrons to move through the interior of certain materials with very little resistance.Read More

Whether you're a tweed-wearing hipster or down with the kids sporting your post-modern baggy jeans, textile-based solar cells that could be patched into your clothes might one day let you charge up your mobile phone or other gadgets while out in the sunshine, according to research published this month in the journal Angewandte Chemie. The work by scientists in China used X-ray characterization of key components to take the first solar strides.
