The MCF is getting a new instrument capable of X-Ray Absorption Fine Structure (XAFS) and X-Ray Absorption Near Edge Structure (XANES).
This laboratory system for XAFS features a 1-2 kW conventional x-ray tube coupled to modern x-ray optics and detectors. It provides very rapid transmission-mode measurements suitable for research and development in electrical energy storage or catalysis while also giving extremely high throughput for general sample characterization or product testing. More details about the instrument can be found here from the instrument manufacturer.
Georgia Tech is hosting a workshop on XANES/XAFS techniques with an overview on Wednesday, December 11th and you can RSVP for that event here!
