Advanced Data Mining in Micro-XRF

On-Demand Session - 64 Minutes

M4 Tornado & its Software Features 

The strength of Micro-XRF is, above all, its versatility with respect to different sample types. Minimal sample preparation, if any, allows virtually any sample to be investigated. The wide range of samples and applications calls for equally flexible and sophisticated means of data extraction and display.

Bruker’s M4 TORNADO comes with a software which complements Micro-XRF’s versatility. The position tagged spectroscopy (Hypermap) allows for saving the individual spectra for each scanned pixel giving access to the full depth of data for post-processing.

In this Webinar we will focus on 3 examples on how to get data out of your Hypermap data cube using different software features:

  • Quantification of quasi homogeneous phases,
  • maximum pixel spectrum for identifying hot spots and searching for traces within these hot spot phases, and
  • advanced use of line scan data, including its export to external software.


Fields of applications will be steel analysis and geological applications.

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