X-ray Fluorescence Analyzers [XRF]

X-ray fluorescence (XRF) is a non-destructive elemental analytical technique to identify what elements are contained and to determine how much concentration of the elements are contained in a material based on the fluorescence X-ray signals emitted from a material.

Among XRF analyzers, energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) analyzers are more suitable for screening analysis on a wide variety of sample applications thanks to its non-destructive approach, multiple element detection, less sample preparation, and shorter measurement time.

HORIBA has a long history of X-ray technologies since 1956 and we have continuously developed XRF analyzers with energy dispersive method. HORIBA XRF analyzers have widely been used in various fields: fuel cells, lithium-ion batteries, pharmaceutical, and other industrial fields to detect foreign matter and develop new materials, as well as astrogeology, archaeology, forensics, and other research fields to perform non-destructive analyses on precious samples.

Application: Non-destructive Failure Analysis on Electronic Components Using the XGT-9000

μ-XRF is a non-destructive analytical technique which can inspect defects, even non-visible ones, inside a sample because of the high penetration of X-rays. This application note introduces failure analysis to detect ion migration, voids, and foreign matter on electronics using the XGT-9000, with key features of the vertical irradiation of a 10 μm probe and the simultaneous imaging of fluorescent X-rays and transmission X-rays.

Application: Spectroscopic Analysis Explains the Mystery of Dragonfly Eye Beads

Spectroscopic analysis can reveal the origin of cultural heritages and the historical background at the time. This application note introduces research of a dragonfly eye bead found in a tomb in China. Using Raman spectroscopy and X-ray analytical microscopy, the bead was found to be from the Eastern Mediterranean region and the result suggested China had cultural and economic exchanges with them during that era.
