Rigaku Presents Latest X-ray Analytical Solutions at 2018 MRS Spring Meeting

Rigaku is presenting its XRD and XRF instrumentation at the 2018 Materials Research Society Spring Meeting & Exhibit in Phoenix

PHOENIX APRIL 05, 2018. Rigaku Corporation is presenting its diverse lines of X-ray diffraction (XRD), X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and Raman spectroscopy instrumentation at the 2018 MRS Spring Meeting and Exhibit, April 2 - 6, 2018. The event is organized by the Materials Research Society and being held at the Phoenix Convention Center and nearby Sheraton Grand Phoenix in Phoenix, Arizona. Rigaku, a global leader in X-ray analytical instrumentation, is exhibiting at the event at booth #503.

The conference is a leading event, highlighting cross-disciplinary worldwide activity in materials research, gathering a diverse global audience of chemists, physicists, materials scientists, biologists, engineers and others.

Rigaku provides the world’s most complete line of X-ray analytical instruments and components. Materials analysis instrumentation from Rigaku ranges from benchtop devices, suited for researchers employing X-ray techniques, to high-end instruments with advanced analytical capabilities.

Among the instruments featured at the event will be the sixth generation Rigaku MiniFlex benchtop X-ray diffraction instrument. The MiniFlex is a general purpose X-ray diffractometer that can perform qualitative and quantitative analysis of polycrystalline materials. The new MiniFlex system delivers speed and sensitivity through innovative technology advances, including the HyPix-400 MF 2D hybrid pixel array detector (HPAD) together with an available 600 W X-ray source and new 8-position automatic sample changer. This new direct photon counting detector enables high speed, low noise data collection and may be operated in 0D and 1D modes for conventional XRD analysis and 2D mode for samples with coarse grain size.
