We chemical analysis and X-ray diffraction group aim to do development of new analysis method based on chemical analysis technology, standardization of analytical techniques and construction of analytical technology system for ensuring reliability of analytical results.

Chemical analysis is a fundamental and the most important technology in the qualitative analysis, precise quantitative analysis and determination of the chemical state. Especially titration or gravimetric analysis has the role of the reference method for other methods of using instrumental analysis. Fusion with advanced analytical techniques and establishment of analytical technology system produces a highly precision of the analytical results. Therefore, we are committed to positioning an important issue about the inheritance of human skill along with the analyzer progress.
Chemical analysis section provides precise elemental analysis information.
 
On all material researches, x-ray diffraction (XRD) measurement is the most important and powerful analytical method to identify the crystalline samples determining their structures, with easily sample preparations and machine operation. Moreover, after XRD measurements the same samples can be used for other measurements without any damages in most cases. We are managing mainly two types of x-ray equipment. One is a single crystal x-ray diffractometer (sXRD) for joint-research type analysis, installed in Namiki site. This sXRD with tinny small size of a single crystal (< 100 µm), is the most suitable analytical method to solve unknown/accurate crystal structures. Another is powder x-ray diffractometers (pXRD) using polycrystalline samples. The pXRDs are very convenient and effective tool to identify the phase relation in sample. Therefore, the pXRDs open as common-usage equipment to the registered users including PDs, RAs, and students.
We are looking forward to inquiry and consultation.
