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.
Astronomers have planned observations using the Hubble Space Telescope operated by NASA and the European Space Agency as well as NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR), Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, and Swift missions in order to glean as much information about the recent supernova flare-up SN 2014J, in galaxy M82 as possible.Read More
