APPLICATIONS

Australia’s abundance of natural resources has led to the formation of a significant mining and processing industry.  Sample analysis and process control is essential in exploration and achieving a high quality product.  Quark Photonics can provide solutions for the characterisation of geological samples including elemental composition, complex chemical mapping, mineral and crystal structure/orientation and size distribution of processed ore.
