The M6 JETSTREAM: State of the Art

On-Demand Session - 67 Minutes

Analyzing the State of the Art with Bruker’s M6 JETSTREAM 

Over the last years spatially resolved X-ray fluorescence analysis has matured into a technique which more and more supports the work of researchers in the field of art and conservation. Micro-XRF has become a tool for fast compositional visualization of works of art. Because it can be used to measure large samples, in the field of art and conservation the technique is also referred to as MAXRF (macro-XRF).

The advance in usability is driven by improvements in signal processing electronics as well as polycapillary optics, and detector technology. However, the development of data processing tools to extract and evaluate the information has made the largest progress.

Bruker’s M6 JETSTREAM combines high spatial resolution with state-of-the-art technology and a powerful set of analytical tools for qualitative data evaluation. In this Webinar, we will focus on the different tools built into the software which empower the user to approach data evaluations in multiple ways.

These tools, among others, are:

  • Element identification
  • Intensity determination
  • Phase analysis and
  • Element intensity display optimization.


The webinar will be rounded off by a 15-minute Q&A session where our experts will answer your questions.
