HORIBA’s XGT systems offer high performance energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) analysis with unique capabilities. The patented XGT (X-Ray Guide Tube) technology combines traditional X-ray fluorescence methodology with small spot analysis. High intensity X-ray beams with diameters ranging from 3 mm down to a unique 10 µm offer versatile analysis capabilities to our X-ray fluorescence analyzers. Full qualitative and quantitative elemental analysis is possible, even on individual microscopic particles, whilst mapping analysis provides detailed element distribution images.
Applications benefiting from HORIBA’s X-ray fluorescence technology include forensics, geology, materials, biology/medicine, electronics, archaeology, engine wear analysis, pharmaceutics, and RoHS/ELV compliance testing.
