Rare Earth Element (REE) Quantification using Micro-XRF Analysis
Rare earth and other critical metals play a crucial role in the evolution of new, greener technologies as society begins the fight against climate change and moves towards more sustainable practices. Challenges are to be found at all stages of the life cycle of critical metals from discovery and extraction through manufacturing and recycling. At the core of these challenges lies confident materials characterization.
In this webinar we will discuss the complexities of quantifying REE compositions of natural and manufactured materials using Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy, with specific focus on micro-XRF analysis. Data from natural minerals and synthetically produced crystals will be used to outline approaches to accurate and precise compositional quantification, and demonstrate the utility of the micro-XRF technique for rapid and robust critical metals characterization.
