Forensic Applications for Micro-XRF
Micro-XRF combines several features which make it ideal for the investigation of forensic samples. The technique can be used to scan large areas, provides simultaneous information on multiple elements down to the trace element level, can be applied under ambient conditions and is non-destructive. In this webinar we will focus on two applications which are common in the field of forensics: Shooting distance determination and small particle analysis, here on the example of glass fragments.

Screening of Restricted Elements including Sample Thickness Correction with the M1 MISTRAL Micro-XRF Spectrometer
This webinar will discuss the benefits of Micro-XRF for the screening of restricted elements using the M1 MISTRAL Micro-XRF spectrometer. Designed for fast and cost-efficient operation, the M1 MISTRAL provides accurate information on the elemental composition of materials through contactless and non-destructive analysis. It allows screening of restricted elements (heavy elements), which can partly replace or limit the amount of more costly analysis methods such as ICP-MS. Virtually all kind of samples can be analyzed in this way, no matter the density.

Strengths of the M4 TORNADO FP Quantification: Keeping Performance even with Primary Filtering - Focusing on Steel
This webinar will discuss the M4 Tornado’s powerful set of analytical tools for qualitative and quantitative analysis. While usually XRF quantification is a two-step process of deriving net peak intensities and from these calculating the sample composition, the quantification algorithm of the M4 Tornado integrates both steps. Strong peak overlaps and pronounced absorption effects are treated to the best of knowledge, providing more robust results.
