THE WOODLANDS, Texas (PRWEB) June 27, 2018
The June 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 articles, scientific papers and news reports. Application reports for X-ray diffraction (XRD), energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) and wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) are featured.
This month's issue contains a featured article on phase identification based on cluster analysis of Debye rings and a Rigaku Journal article offering an introduction to single crystal X-ray analysis.
The book review features The Evolution of Scientific Knowledge: From Certainty to Uncertainty by Edward R. Dougherty. The book is about scientific epistemology, the theory of scientific knowledge, and covers the evolution of scientific knowledge from the time of Aristotle to that of genomics.
“Material Analysis in the News” presents the latest global news stories, including news about a study revealing that an estimated 16 million metric tons of Rare Earth Elements (REEs) — enough to fulfill global demands potentially for hundreds of years on a semi-infinite basis — have been discovered in Japanese waters. Another story reports that NASA's Curiosity rover has found new evidence preserved in rocks on Mars that suggests the planet could have supported ancient life, as well as new evidence in the Martian atmosphere that relates to the search for current life on the planet.
“Recent Scientific Papers of Interest” - a monthly compilation of material analysis papers appearing in recently released journals and publications - features 24 recently published papers on research relating to materials science.
