The Rigaku Journal is a scientific and technical journal published by Rigaku to serve the X-ray analysis community.

Rigaku Corporation has published its latest edition of the Rigaku Journal, which is available for download from the company’s global website.

The Rigaku Journal is a scientific and technical journal published by Rigaku to serve the X-ray analysis community. It is a semiannual journal, publishing articles covering to a wide range of X-ray diffraction (XRD) and X-ray fluorescence (XRF) applications.

The new issue features a technical article covering the determination of molecular structure of odor components based on crystalline sponge method – a technique that allows single crystal X-ray structure analysis to be applied to target compounds that are otherwise difficult to crystalize.

Other articles include studies of grazing incidence X-ray diffraction (GI-XRD) measurements of thin film samples using a 2D detector and 2D small angle and wide angle X-ray scattering (SAXS/WAXS) attachment, cement analysis by wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) spectrometry, foreign material analysis using energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) spectrometers, and trace elemental analyses of beverages and biological materials by total reflection X-ray fluorescence (TXRF) spectrometry.

New products and technology debuts are presented, including the Rigaku CT Lab HX 3D X-ray benchtop microtomography system for high resolution imaging of large samples. A compact yet powerful micro CT system, it can provide three dimensional X-ray images of a wide variety of samples such as printed circuit boards (PCB’s), batteries, food, drugs, medical device, bones, minerals, ceramics, and light metals.

Also featured is the new Ewald3D viewer software module, enabling easy identification of effects, problems or artifacts in difficult or problematic datasets. The new tool allows visualization of measured reciprocal space in 3-dimensions, undistorted and in short timeframes.
