Lab X-ray Absorption: A New Dimension for Materials Characterization

October 11, 2023
8:00 a.m. PDT / 11:00 a.m. EDT / 16:00 BST / 17:00 CEST - Duration: 60 Minutes


X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy (XAS) is a powerful and versatile technique that fits into the larger landscape of material characterization techniques by providing unique, element-specific insights into the local atomic structure, electronic properties, and bonding interactions of materials. It complements and enhances the information obtained from other characterization methods, contributing to a more comprehensive understanding of materials.  

In this session, we will discuss the utility of XAS and how newly developed lab-scale instrumentation enables its practical use as an everyday tool for materials characterization. Come see real world applications of laboratory XAS. 

Key Learning Objectives:
  • Introduction to X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy and its unique capabilities for materials characterization.
  • Detailed look into example applications of laboratory XAS. 
  • Overview of new lab-scale XAS instrumentation.
  • Understanding the process of conducting a laboratory XAS measurement, including a real-time measurement demonstration. 
Who Should Attend:
  • Research Scientists from Universities or Industries that routinely perform materials characterization.
  • Materials Characterization Lab Managers and Users interested in understanding new techniques.
  • Those interested in element-specific, non-destructive material analysis.
