UCT In-situ Magnetometer/Raman Device Raman Spectrometer

The equipment is an instrument for magnetic characterisation of ferro-magnetic nano-materials in a controlled environment ("in-situ") combined with a Raman spectroscopy probe. The magnetic properties of these properties of these materials (total magnetisation (maximum external field strength: 2T), remnant magnetisation, coercive field, full hysteresis) as well as Raman specta can be measured at varied temperatures (up to 550◦ C) and elevated pressures (up to 100 bar) under flow conditions using a variety of different gases and or liquids.

UCT X-Ray Diffractometer (XRD) X-ray Diffractometer (XRD)

X-ray fluorescence analysis is one of the best analytical techniques to perform elemental analysis in all kind of samples, from liquids and solids to loose powders. X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (XRF) is known for its unrivalled accuracy, precision and reliability. This robust analytical technology has made its way into all kinds of industrial applications, such as cement, polymers, refineries, mining, and industrial minerals.

UCT Inductively Coupled Plasma Atomic Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-AES) Inductively Coupled Plasma Spectrometer (ICP)

Inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES), also referred to as inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES), is an analytical technique used for the detection of trace metals. It is a type of emission spectroscopy that uses the inductively coupled plasma to produce excited atoms and ions that emit electromagnetic radiation at wavelengths characteristic of a particular element. The intensity of this emission is indicative of the concentration of the element within the sample.
