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 chemisty can be clearly defined for geological studies.
The MISSION : CORIOSITY requires no sample preparation and will analyse diverse samples with a surface height variation of 6 mm. Analysis is conducted at room temperature and pressure. No additional gases are required.
At a 50 μm high resolution the full surface is analysed for every element in 40 sec/cm2. A lower resolution analysis offers higher speeds of 10 sec/cm2.
The only benchtop core analyser offering ALL the elements, high speed AND high resolution.
