X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF)
In the XRF Spectrometry technique elements in a sample can be identified. This occurs when high-energy X-ray photons are emitted from a source (X-ray tube) and strike the sample. The photons from the X-ray tube have enough energy to knock electrons out of the innermost orbital of atoms in the sample. Read More.
X-Ray Diffraction (XRD)
In the XRD technique a sample is placed in the X-Ray Diffration analyzer and is gradually rotated while being bombarded with X-rays, producing a diffraction pattern. About 95% of all solid materials can be described as crystalline. When X-rays interact with a crystalline substance (Phase), one gets a diffraction pattern. Read More.
NIR is a highly flexible form of analysis, which can be applied to a broad range of research and industrial process applications. Long a staple technology in remote sensing, NIR reflectance spectroscopy has become popular within industrial markets as a cost-effective tool for measuring materials to optimize processes and manage costs.

Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS)
With LIBS, a laser is fired at a sample, heating it almost instantaneously and creating an electron plasma. As the plasma cools after about 1 μs, the electrons return to the atoms that constitute the sample, emitting light at various discrete wavelengths. Read More.
Raman is a form of vibrational spectroscopy that measures the interaction of light with matter. In modern Raman instruments, laser light is used as the source and focused on a sample, the interaction causes atoms in molecules to vibrate, and the Raman scattered light is collected, and dispersed onto a detector.

Gas Chromatography (GC)
Gas chromatography (GC), is used in analytical chemistry for separating and analyzing compounds that can be vaporized without decomposition. Typical uses of GC include testing the purity of a particular substance, or separating the different components of a mixture. Read More.
Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy
In infrared spectroscopy, IR radiation is passed through a sample. Some of the infrared radiation is absorbed by the sample and some of it is passed through (transmitted). The resulting spectrum represents the molecular absorption and transmission, creating a molecular ﬁngerprint of the sample. Read More.
