The latest edition of The Bridge, the materials science newsletter from Rigaku Corporation, is now available online on the company’s global website. The Bridge presents current news and analysis techniques related to the latest developments in X-ray based materials science, including news reports, articles and scientific papers.

The January 2018 edition of The Bridge contains two Rigaku Journal articles that provide an introduction to X-ray analysis using the diffraction method and another that provides insight into liquid sample preparation for XRF analysis.

Application reports are presented for various X-ray analysis techniques, including thermal analysis (TA), Raman spectroscopy, wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF), energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF), and single crystal X-ray diffraction (SCX).

“Material Analysis in the News” presents the most pertinent global news stories, including a report about a Japanese start-up company development of technology to produce bendable light-emitting diode (LED) screens - which could revolutionize the way information is presented – and a report about the positive trends on science funding and R&D spending.

“Recent Scientific Papers of Interest” - a monthly compilation of material analysis papers appearing in recently released journals and publications - features 15 recently published papers on a variety of research relating to materials science.

This month's video presents "The Delicious Chemistry of Sushi," an educational exploration of the science of rice, fish, and seaweed.
