A special "The Wonder of Elements" exhibition is being held at the National Museum of Nature and Science (Ueno Park, Tokyo) from Saturday July 21 to Monday October 8 (a national holiday)

This special exhibition will offer a fun and easy-to-understand introduction to all 118 elements, using actual samples and products to describe their properties and applications.

At this exhibition, a Shimadzu representative will use an X-ray fluorescence spectrometer to present the workshop: "Let's try analyzing things! What elements are they made of?"

X-ray fluorescence spectrometers are used to investigate the type and content of elements in a sample by irradiating the sample with X-rays and then analyzing the energy level (wavelength) or intensity of fluorescent X-rays emitted from the sample.
In many cases, metals that appear identical contain very different elements.

Many Japanese children are joining us in using an X-ray fluorescence spectrometer and can investigate the kinds of elements contained in familiar metal products we see in our daily lives.
