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.
