Overview

Can teaching of X-ray spectroscopy be used as an exciting, engaging investigative approach to common analytical concepts? Can you extend your teaching from the lab to field? How about teaching a technique hands-on as requested and desired by industry as a usable job skill?

The answer to all these questions is a resounding yes! Join Alexander Seyfarth, Product Manager for X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) at Bruker AXS, and Professor Dr. Peter Palmer of San Francisco State University as they discuss the academic perspective and approach of XRF spectroscopy. Dr. Palmer introduces and compares X-rays with other portions of the electromagnetic spectrum already covered in traditional chemistry courses. Examples from lab and field work will be shown with respect to the instrumentation types used.

Learn more about the teaching of hands-on XRF techniques and how to make learning not only interesting, but relevant to today's job market.
