New XRF Methodology and Library for Sample Identification and Archiving

Feb 07 2008

Horiba Jobin Yvon (UK) is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with xk, Inc. to become the exclusive provider of SLICE software to the XRF community. SLICE, the Spectral Library Identification and Classification Explorer, is designed to archive, query, and compare x-ray spectra, and represents a revolutionary new approach to materials analysis. It was developed under an FBI contract to save time and improve the accuracy of evidence identification, and to create an advanced archiving tool, allowing spectra, images, and text to be seamlessly linked.

Searching the database allows the spectra to be interrogated quickly and efficiently. It has become a widely-used tool within Forensic laboratories where virtually any material can be encountered, and its use is now being extended to contaminant analysis in a wide range of industries, including pharmaceutical, automotive, engine wear and semiconductor. HORIBA Jobin Yvon's XGT micro-XRF analysers are used
across these fields, and in combination with SLICE offer the analyst a complete solution for materials identification.
