Methods

XPLORAYTION offers counselling, support and implementation of experiments by means of non-destructive X-ray based analytics at highest sensitivities and spatial resolutions - at the synchrotron as well as in the laboratory
We are happy to advise you which method is the one best suited for your scientific question and we will aid you to draft a synchrotron beamtime proposal, buy beamtime for urgent cases or if possible conduct the experiments at an immediately available laboratory. If needed, our service also includes post-treatment and analyses of your data and reporting. The following table provides a summary  of methods we can directly or, through our scientific network, indirectly offer you.
