Application note: Using the Correlate™ module to study a mineralogical section with Raman and SEM
An application note detailing the use of the Correlate™ module of the WiRE™ software to combine a Raman and SEM image of the same section of a mineralogical sample and in so doing creating more powerful data, by combining the chemical and physical information of the two techniques.
Application note: SCA geological application note - meteor and clinker
Using the SEM-SCA to analyse Portland cement clinker and meteorites (four pages).
Application note: SCA Geological applications note - sandstone
The SEM-SCA is used to investigate a sandstone sample from the Loch Torridon area of NW Scotland, identifying the component minerals and their phases.
Application note: SCA geological application note - heavy mineral sands
Combined SEM and Raman analysis of heavy mineral deposits from South Africa. These deposits are a valuable source of titanium, zirconium, and iron.
We have produced a range of application examples, including the following.

Analysing volcanic rock in high definition
Quantify trace species from large samples.During volcanic eruptions lava is extruded which may have a variety of chemical and structural compositions. In this example, an inVia Raman microscope was successfully employed to quantify the relative amount of quartz and cristobalite within a Mount St. Helens thin section taken from edifice rock.
