Exploration around the world involves the act of finding and gaining information about a place. In fact, exploration is defined by the Cambridge Dictionary as "the act of travelling to a place or searching a place in order to learn about it."
Micro-XRF allows for learning and understanding of a place to occur by seeing more details in materials. Heterogeneous samples are no longer a problem for qualitative and quantitative XRF analysis, with the ability to observe the spatial variation and concentration of major, minor and trace elements through XRF element concentration maps.
The Bruker M4 TORNADO has a customisable spot sizes down to 25 µm means that small-scale textural and compositional features can be identified, including those that may not be visibly discernible, enabling geologists to delineate zonation, fluid flow and ultimately the paragenesis of their samples.
