One post – two papers

One post – two papers

This month we published two great outputs from our measurements on two different synchrotrons.

  1. Diamond experiments are summarised in M. Rauwolf, A. Turyanskaya, D. Ingerle, N. Szoboszlai, I. Pape, A. Malandain, O. Fox, L. Hahn, K. Sawhney, C. Streli: “Characterization of a submicro-X-ray fluorescence setup on the B16 beamline at Diamond Light Source“; Journal of Synchrotron Radiation, 25 (2018), 1 – 2.
  2. Elettra beamtimes reported in L. Perneczky, M. Rauwolf, D. Ingerle, D. Eichert, F. Brigidi, W. Jark, S. Bjeoumikhova, G. Pepponi, P. Wobrauschek, C. Streli, A. Turyanskaya: “Temporary implementation and testing of a confocal SR-μXRF system forbone analysis at the X-ray Fluorescence beamline at Elettra“; Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research A, 897 (2018), 114 – 119.

Latest news from St. Petersburg! Anna Turyanskaya just delivered the talk “Elemental bioimaging in bone by µXRF” at 16th International Symposium on Trace Elements in Man and Animals (TEMA-16).Earlier this week, Dr. A. Pejovic-Milic (Ryerson Univerisity, Canada) presented the first results of joint project with our group – poster “Elemental mapping in rat bones treated with strontium ranelate and strontium citrate using µXRF”.

26th Seminar Activation Analysis and Gamma Spectroscopy (SAAGAS 26) and Presentation Award

SAAGAS 26

The Seminar Activation Analysis and Gamma Spectroscopy (SAAGAS 26), took place on 19-22 February in TU Wien, Vienna, Austria. Our group from Atominstitut contributed to the Seminar 2  oral presentations, as well as 5 posters – and three of the posters were devoted to biological samples:

  • Total X-ray reflection spectrometry of black tea and herbal infusions
  • μXRF spectrometer of Atominstitut in bio-imaging application
  • Confocal μXRF spectrometer for low to high Z element analysis

We’re very delighted to share, that the talk of Mirjam Rauwolf – “Synchrotron radiation micro XRF analysis of zinc in osteosarcoma tissue” received an award!

Congratulations!

Beamtime at Elettra Synchrotron and Paper Announcement

Beamtime at Elettra Synchrotron and Paper Announcement

Great news from Italy! First of all, the needed improvements were made on our micro-XRF laboratory setup and we are having second wonderful beamtime at X-Ray fluorescence beamline at Elettra Syncrotrone, Trieste, Italy.

What is more, the paper “(Invited) ALD to Prevent Metal Transfer from Implants” (doi: 10.1149/07506.0167ecst), which is the result of collaboration with University of Brescia (Dr. Laura Borgese, Dr. Fabjola Bilo,  Dr. Annalisa Zacco, Prof. Elza Bontempi, Dr. Michela Pasquali, Dr. Stefania Federici and Prof. Laura E. Depero) and for which micro-XRF spectrometer at Atominstitut was used, has been published. 

Successful beamtime = happy team
