  • Measuring the Fluorescence Quantum Efficiency of Liquid Samples

    Fluorescent substances absorb a characteristic wavelength of that substance and then emit a fluorescent light with a wavelength longer than the absorbed light. The ratio of photons absorbed versus emitted as fluorescent light is referred to as the fluorescence quantum yield or quantum efficiency and is associated with the fluorescence intensity of fluorescent substances.
    This article describes using an RF-6000 spectrofluorophotometer with an integrating sphere attached to determine the fluorescence quantum efficiency and measure quinine sulfate.

  • Measurement of Microplastics and Use of Thermal-Damaged Plastics Library

    Microscopic plastic with a size of several μm to 5 mm or less is called microplastic. As a marine environmental problem that adversely affects coastlines and marine ecosystems, and consequently may potentially affect human health, microplastics have become a global issue in recent years. As early action is necessary to protect the global environment, various analytical devices are used to designate the sources of microplastics and study countermeasures.
    This article introduces measurement of microplastics with a size on the order of several mm and use of the Shimadzu thermal-damaged plastics library to identify the samples.

  • High Speed X-Ray Diffraction Analysis with Asbestos (Chrysotile) Wide Range OneSight Detector

    Asbestos is a preferred construction material due to its excellent heat and acid resistance. However, the use of asbestos is gradually limited due to adverse health effects. It is mandatory to follow the asbestos concentration in any construction material according to the limit values specified in the regulations.

    In this study, an example of asynchronous analysis of the chrysotile, an asbestos type, is performed using the new wide-range high-speed OneSight detector.
