LIBS, XRF or OES – a rough guide...

Having trouble deciding which type of elemental analyzer best suits your metals analysis needs?

Hitachi High-Tech’s Mikko Järvikivi’s rough guide looks at the main technologies for metals analysis, what instruments are available, and where they’re most effective.

 

The field of materials analysis has been rapidly changing in recent years. The continued development and application of technologies like optical emission spectroscopy (OES), X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) is making it easier for companies across a whole range of industries.

Whether it’s for quality assurance/quality control processes (QA/QC), material sorting, positive material identification (PMI) or scientific analysis, products are available that enable you to test materials on-site, and on the move.

The question many companies are asking is: which technology is right for us?
