Focus on Analyzers

| By Gerald Ondrey

A sixth-generation benchtop XRD diffractometer

This company provides a complete line of X-ray analytical instruments and components, including benchtop X-ray diffraction (XRD) and X-ray fluorescence (XRF) systems, handheld analyzers, X-ray optics and detectors. Among the latest instruments presented at the virtual Analytica Conference (October 19–23, 2020; was the sixth-generation MiniFlex benchtop XRD diffractometer (photo). This multipurpose benchtop XRD system is able to determine crystalline phase identification and phase quantification and perform qualitative and quantitative analysis of polycrystalline materials. Also, the SmartLab high-resolution XRD is an automated, multipurpose system that features guidance software for powder diffraction, thin-film metrology, small-angle X-ray scattering, in-plane scattering and operando measurements. — Rigaku Europe SE, Neu-Isenburg, Germany
