What is spectroscopy?
Spectroscopy is an analytical method to study the interactions between matter and radiation. This can be achieved by using a spectrometer, which can analyze a particle by the wavelength and frequency of light.
Malvern Panalytical offer a number of analytical products to solve the challenges of your particle characterization or material identification requirements.
Near infrared Spectroscopy
Near-infrared spectroscopy is a highly flexible form of spectroscopic analysis and is a cost-effective solution for measuring materials to optimize processes.
The ASD range of visible and near-infrared spectrometers and spectroradiometers are an ideal solution for material identification and analysis, and light energy measurements. The full-range and portable solutions from ASD cover the following spectroscopy techniques:
- Vis-NIR spectroscopy
- SWIR (Short Wave Infrared) spectroscopy
- Vis-NIR spectroradiometry
Morphologically Directed Raman Spectroscopy (MDRS)
Morphologically Directed Raman Spectroscopy or MDRS ®, combines automated particle imaging and Raman spectroscopy. This enables rapid, automated chemical and morphological characterization of the individual components in a multi-component sample.
The Morphologi 4-ID offers rapid, automated, component-specific particle characterization in a single, integrated platform.
X-ray Fluorescence Spectroscopy
X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy is used to identify elements in a sample by exciting that sample with X-rays and then measuring the Fluorescent X-rays coming from the sample. Elements are identified by determining the energy or wavelength of the Fluorescent x-ray and the concentration can be calculated from the intensity of the Fluorescent X-rays.
There are two techniques of x-ray spectroscopy: Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy and Wavelength Dispersive Spectroscopy. Malvern Panalytical offers several X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy solutions for both qualitative and quantitative information on a sample.
Pulsed Fast Thermal Neutron Activation (PFTNA)
PFTNA uses spectroscopy techniques to interpret elemental concentrations. This technology is being increasingly used in a variety of industries to enable high speed, online process control.
The CNA range of cross-belt analyzers deliver highly representative elemental analyses for safe, robust in-line process control in real time.
