Olympus Innov-X's Terra Portable XRD; A First of its Kind!

Terra Portable Xrd/Xrf Spectrometer For True "In The Field" Rock Mineral Analysis

The first of its kind: Olympus Innov-X is proud to showcase the Terra; a truly portable combination XRF/XRD system designed specifically for rock and mineral analysis. Now field work really can be done in the field. Terra can be configured with everything you need to acquire and analyze diffraction data in a rugged compact case. With our patented sample handling system not only is sample preparation time minimized, but accuracy in peak identification, previously only available using laboratory based systems, can be achieved.

X-ray Diffraction (XRD) is a method of determining the arrangement of atoms within a crystal, in which a beam of X-rays strikes a crystal and diffracts into many specific directions. From the angles and intensities of these diffracted beams, a crystallographer produces a three-dimensional picture of the density of electrons within the crystal. From this electron density, the mean positions of the atoms in the crystal can be determined, as well as their chemical bonds, their disorder and various other information.

X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) is the emission of characteristic "secondary" (or fluorescent) X-rays from a material that has been excited by bombarding with high-energy X-rays or gamma rays. XRF is widely used for elemental analysis and chemical analysis, particularly in the investigation of metals, glass, ceramics and building materials, and for research in geochemistry, forensic science and archaeology.
