Per Hour Charge for use of the Micro X-Ray Fluorescence System.
The µXRF instrument is able to measure elements in either air or low vacuum conditions. With the penetrating power of x-rays and larger spot size, the analysers are more appropriate than scanning electron microscopes for samples with larger scale features. The system is equipped with a 30 mm2 silicon drift detector, which offers high signal throughput with excellent resolution. This system can be used in conjunction with the automated hardness system to correlate the change in hardness to the chemical composition of the sample.
If you would like to obtain the specifications of the systems available please visit the LMCC’s website (www.lboro.ac.uk/lmcc). If you would like any advice on which analytical service can provide you with the best results for your specific investigation or an estimate of how long the analysis will take, please contact us, we will be more than happy to help.
LMCC’s primary aim is to support materials research within the Materials Department and the University as a whole. However, supporting industry by providing specialist services is also seen as a very important part of LMCC’s activities.
The quantity of this product purchased will be equal to the number of hours you have on the system. The cost includes a trained operator to help ensure you get the maximum benefit from your analysis. At the end of the session we shall provide you with any data generated during the session on a CD or USB memory stick.
The online store is a method for pre-paying for time on the analytical equipment available within LMCC. The price is solely for the use of the analytical equipment for the given time period. In order to get the maximum benefit out of the session the sample needs to be prepared correctly. If you have any concerns regarding sample preparation please contact LMCC, we also provide a sample preparation service (at an extra cost) if you would prefer us to handle this.
