Recently, the compact MAGPRO’s maximum voltage was increased from 60 kV to 70 kV while maintaining the same size profile. This article highlights the advantages of 70 kV excitation of cadmium, an element of interest for Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS), at parts per million (ppm) levels.

Industry leaders answer this question: In what area will spectroscopy see the biggest growth in the next five years?

The use of photodiode-array (PDA) ultraviolet–visible (UV–vis) spectrophotometers is mainly adopted in industrial applications such as pharmaceutical and chemical production, coatings, or food and agriculture processing.
