LABORATORIES

 

XR-DIFFRACTOMETRY


The X-ray Diffractometer results in an x-ray diffractogramme which allows for the identification of crystalline, organic and inorganic substances.

OPTICAL MICROSCOPY


The Optical Microscopy, through the use of a microscope, allows for the observation and acquisition of images magnified up to 180x and is necessary for the identification of the often diagnostic micro-characteristics
of both the artefact and minerals.

ULTRAVIOLET FLUORESCENCE


The Ultraviolet (UV) fluorescence allows for the observation of the phenomenon of fluorescence in samples illuminated by UV light. The effect of fluorescence is one of the elements which leads to the identification of the mineral or organic substance contained within a sample.

RAMAN SPECTROSCOPY


The Raman spectrometer enables the analysis of the light emitted by a sample when illuminated by a laser with results then being conveyed in a spectrum diagram showing the characteristics of each substance.

VIS SPECTROPHOTOSCOPY


The VIS spectrophotometer allows for the observation of both the absorption and emission of chemical elements present within a sample.
The Colorimeter enables a quantitative measurement of colour.

FLUORESCENCE RX


The X-Ray fluorescence allows for indetification of the chemical elemets present within a substance though the analysis of the paticular radiation emitted by a sample when exposed to x-rays.
