MISSION:CORIOSITY

Every element mapped at high resolution and speed

High speed, high resolution geological core analysis for elemental maps and mineral images

  • Key Features

    • 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

MISSION:CORIOSITY

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.
