X-Ray Material Imaging Provides Industry with Precise Details of Internal Structures and Features
Advanced MicroAnalytical offers X-ray imaging, 3D X-ray CT and other exacting material testing services to support a wide range of industries.
Salem, NH, October 22nd, 2020 X-ray imaging is a well-known method for examining the internal structural composition of a material in a nondestructive manner. This can be achieved because X-rays penetrate most substances and are only absorbed by relatively dense materials, allowing the inside of many materials to be examined without destroying or damaging it. As an inspection tool, X-rays are often used to document internal structures and measure parts. With the substantial range of magnifications possible with a modern industrial X-ray.......[Read More]
Identification and Characterization of Crystalline Materials Utilizing X-Ray Diffraction
Advanced MicroAnalytical provides precision testing services utilizing XRD and other advanced techniques to provide clients with answers and solutions to material challenges.
Salem, NH, September 29th, 2020 X-ray diffraction (XRD) is a technique that is widely used today for the identification and characterization of crystalline materials. It is a rapid and nondestructive technique based on Bragg’s law that can offer scientists and engineers a wealth of information when examining crystalline materials. Due to the long-range order of the atoms or molecules in the structure of crystalline materials, a sample will generate unique diffraction patterns when irradiated with X-rays. These patterns can then be.......[Read More]
Identifying Microplastics to Support Industry and Environmental Research Efforts
Advanced MicroAnalytical offers Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy and other material testing services to identify and quantify microplastics.
Salem, NH, September 4th, 2020 Microplastics have been manufactured for use in drug delivery and products such as cosmetics. They are also considered a potential environmental hazard by many scientists. Described by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) as plastic fragments less than 5 mm in length, microplastics are further categorized into primary and secondary microplastics. Primary microplastics include microbeads, plastic pellets and other manufactured raw plastic materials. Secondary microplastics are created.......[Read More]
Transmission Electron Microscopy Services from Advanced MicroAnalytical Provide Industry with Detailed Images and the Answers to Material Challenges
Advanced MicroAnalytical offers material and surface testing solutions utilizing TEM and other advanced techniques.
Salem, NH, August 26th, 2020
Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) is a scientific technique used for imaging and analysis of structure and morphology at exceptionally high resolutions using an electron beam transmitted through a very small or thin prepared section of a sample. TEM creates images of samples at magnifications far surpassing the capabilities of optical microscopy, even down to atomic lattice line structure resolution. TEM with energy-dispersive X-ray analysis (EDX), along with scanning electron microscopy (SEM) with.......[Read More]
