Straddling the range from gold grains to Moon dust: automated scanning electron microscopy
Do you need to support mineral prospection by automated mineralogy and artificial intelligence? Do you need to build a platinum concentrator? Do you need to find a particular dust particle in a million? Do you need to assess the risk of environmental pollution? Or to mix up a bucket of Moon dust? In all these tasks, automated scanning electron microscopy proves useful by integrating millions of individual measurements.
RNDr. Tomáš Hrstka PhD., the current leader of the Atmospheric Dust Project of the Strategy AV21 programme, presented the past and the future of micro-analytical methods in geosciences during the “Week of Science and Technology” event.
