X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) Facility - Under reno until summer-fall 2021
After decades of use, the analysis of geological materials using X-ray fluorescence spectrometry continues to be very important in our elemental analytical labratory. It is an excellent method for the determination of the major and the more abundant trace elements in whole rock samples and other materials. With XRF it is possible to produce accurate analysis of samples which contain minerals, e.g. Zircon, which are difficult to dissolve and samples which contain elements, e.g. niobium, which are difficult to stabilize in solution.
