Measurement of ultra-small samples using D/MAX RAPID II

AppNote B-XRD1013: measurement of ultra-small samples using D/MAX RAPID II


In investigations that rely on information gained from evidence left at the scene of a traffic accident, evidence is often limited in the amount available for testing or consists of microscopic traces, which made it difficult to acquire sufficient results with conventional XRD systems. The D/MAX-RAPID II, equipped with a confocal mirror, combines high-brilliance incident X-rays with a large active-area 2D detector, allowing for rapid micro area measurements of several 10 μm in just about 10 minutes.
