Rigaku Products by Technique

Explore the products Rigaku recommends for the following analytical techniques:

Biological SAXS

SAXS is a small-angle scattering technique by which nano-scale density differences in a sample can be quantified. It can determine nano-particle size distributions, resolve the size and shape of (mono-disperse) macromolecules, determine pore sizes, and much more.

Computed tomography

Computed tomography makes use of computer-processed combinations of many X-ray measurements taken from different angles to produce cross-sectional images of specific areas of a scanned object, allowing the user to see inside the object without cutting.

Handheld LIBS

Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) is an elemental analytical technique with the ability to detect and quantify elemental composition (both heavy and light elements) in a solid, liquid or even gas state.

Handheld Raman

Raman spectroscopy can be used to effectively and efficiently identify and distinguish between different materials in liquid and solid forms, including organic materials and polyatomic inorganic materials.

In-plane diffraction

SmartLab’s fifth in-plane horizontal axis measures diffraction in the plane of the sample surface. Ultra–thin films less than a single nanometer thick and the texture of surface layers can be analyzed without re-positioning the sample to an unstable vertical orientation.

Microtomography (micro-CT)

The new nano3DX allows you see into many types of samples, including those that have low absorption contrast, for example CFRP, or denser materials like ceramic composites. The nano3DX allows you to achieve this by providing the ability to change the X-ray wavelength to enhance contrast or penetration.

Rietveld analysis

Invented by Hugo Rietveld, Whole Pattern Fitting Structure Refinement is now widely accepted to be an exceptionally valuable method for structural analysis of nearly all classes of crystalline materials not available as single crystals.
