High speed, high resolution geological core analysis for elemental maps and mineral images
Every element with high sensitivity to light elements including H, Be, Li, B, C, F, O and Na
High resolution down to 50 μm
High speed at 40 sec/cm2
Low operating costs at ambient temperature and pressure
No sample preparation accomodating a surface roughness of 6 mm
The ultimate innovation in geological core analysis providing high-speed and high-resolution mineralogy by element mapping. It is micro analysis with speeds faster than any other analytical method for element or mineral analysis.
Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) analyses the whole periodic table including elements that are invisible to ambient X-ray technology such as H, Be, Li, B, C, F, O and Na. The sensitivity is from trace (sub-ppm) to percent concentrations and this ensures accurate mapping so alteration minerals with slight changes in chemistry can be clearly defined for geological studies.
The CORIOSITY requires no sample preparation and will analyse diverse samples with a surface height variation of 6mm. Analysis is conducted at room temperature and pressure. No additional gases are required.
At a 50μm high resolution the full surface is analysed for every element in 40sec/cm2. A lower resolution analysis offers higher speeds of 10sec/cm2.
The only benchtop core analyser offering ALL the elements, high speed AND high resolution.
