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. 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.
