Applied X-ray spectroscopy

Characterisation LEGO

A few weeks back I found a great website by Boise State University which has LEGO instructions for a range of characterisation instruments. So naturally I had to try them out. I used Toy Pro to get all the necessary pieces and built the SEM and the XRD. I made a few custom adjustment particularly for the screens and control panels. I love the fact that the door opens on the XRD. Sadly, for now there aren’t any instructions for XPS – maybe I need to look into designing my own.

There might be a couple of safety issues in these labs (particularly the bunny next to the Erlenmeyer on the floor) but other than that I love the kits!
