Rigaku Corporation is presenting its diverse lines of X-ray diffraction (XRD), X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and Raman spectroscopy instrumentation at the  2019 MRS Fall Meeting and Exhibit, Sunday December 1 to Friday, December 6, 2019. The event is organized by the Materials Research Society and will be held at the Hynes Convention Center and adjacent Sheraton Boston Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts. Rigaku, a global leader in X-ray analytical instrumentation and a “Gold” level corporate partner of the Materials Research Society, will be exhibiting at the event at booth #1017.

The conference is the world’s foremost international scientific gathering for materials research, showcasing leading interdisciplinary research in both fundamental and applied areas, presented by scientists from around the world. 

Materials analysis instrumentation from Rigaku ranges from benchtop devices, suited for researchers employing X-ray techniques, to high-end instruments with advanced analytical capabilities. 

The sixth generation Rigaku MiniFlex benchtop X-ray diffraction instrument is on display at the event. The MiniFlex system is a general purpose X-ray diffractometer, able to perform qualitative and quantitative analysis of polycrystalline materials. The instrument is designed to deliver speed and sensitivity through innovative technology enhancements, such as the HyPix-400 MF 2D hybrid pixel array detector (HPAD) coupled with a 600 W X-ray source and 8-position automatic sample changer.

Also on exhibit during the meeting is the Rigaku Progeny 1064 nm-based handheld Raman analyzer, which will be available for in-booth demonstrations.  The unit is designed for flexibility and ease of use to meet the needs of routine manufacturing and more intricate quality assurance applications.
