PHOENIX, April 24, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Rigaku Corporation, a global leader in X-ray analytical instrumentation, is presenting its diverse lines of X-ray diffraction (XRD), X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and Raman spectroscopy instrumentation at the 2019 MRS Spring Meeting and Exhibit. The event, organized by the Materials Research Society, is taking place April 22 - 26, 2019 at the Phoenix Convention Center and nearby Sheraton Grand Phoenix in Phoenix, Arizona. Rigaku is exhibiting at the event at booth #205.
The conference is a leading event highlighting worldwide cross-disciplinary activity in materials research, gathering a diverse global audience of chemists, physicists, materials scientists, biologists, engineers and others.
Rigaku provides the world's most complete line of X-ray analytical instruments and components. Materials analysis instrumentation from Rigaku ranges from benchtop devices, suited for researchers employing X-ray techniques, to high-end instruments with advanced analytical capabilities.
Among the instruments featured at the event will be the sixth generation Rigaku MiniFlex benchtop X-ray diffraction instrument. The MiniFlex is a general purpose X-ray diffractometer that can perform qualitative and quantitative analysis of polycrystalline materials. The new MiniFlex system delivers speed and sensitivity through innovative technology advances, including the HyPix-400 MF 2D hybrid pixel array detector (HPAD) together with an available 600 W X-ray source and new 8-position automatic sample changer. This new direct photon counting detector enables high-speed, low-noise data collection and may be operated in 0D and 1D modes for conventional XRD analysis and 2D mode for samples with coarse grain size.
