Kharkiv Polytechnic University’s Research Study Published in Cambridge

Cambridge Scholars Publishing, the British independent academic publisher, issued the collection of works by the National Technical University “Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute” titled “Analyzing Materials Using Joint X-ray Fluorescence and Diffraction Spectra.”

“The book is based on research on divisive approaches of x-ray analysis: phase and elemental. It was written by Ihor Mikhailov, Oleksiy Baturin and Anton Mikhailov, researchers at the Department of Physics of Metals and Semiconductors of the Polytechnic University,” informs the university’s press service.

According to Anton Mikhailov, the publication will be useful for specialists in the field of solid-state physics, including undergraduate and postgraduate students who study this advanced topic for related courses.

“Using the original system of secondary emitters, we managed to place diffraction peaks in the ‘empty’ parts of the fluorescence spectrum. This idea was first published in the “Problems of Atomic Science and Technology” journal in Kharkiv in 2014, the article was also mentioned in the British review called “2014 Atomic Spectrometry Update – a Review of Advances in X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry.” It took the authors almost two years to create the book. The results of the work of the entire department over the past 30 years were included in it,” noted Anton Mikhailov.

The co-author of the book also highlighted that a number of articles on this topic have been published in leading English and American academic journals.

Reference: Cambridge Scholars Publishing is an independent academic publisher founded by former teachers and researchers of Cambridge University. Today, publications of original scientific works in a wide range of areas are published in four key sectors: humanitarian and social sciences, medical sciences, physical sciences, life sciences.
