Investment in new Spectrometer Technology - Dec 2014


Further investment in the laboratory facilites has seen the replacement of the PMT based ARL spectrometer with a modern GNR CCD based spectrometer. The new machine is easily set up to measure different bases and alloys, and individual elements are added simply by alteration in the software without the need for additional optics, detectors or electronics.  The machine utilises an innovative standardisation process, making this aspect of running the spectrometer very much more straightforward and reducing the time to set the machine prior to measurements being made.
