Welcome to the first edition of Wavelength – A quarterly newsletter dedicated to highlighting the latest news and research produced from Curtin’s X-ray characterisation facilities, namely the X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) facilities. As a special first edition feature, we have included an entire page that highlights the basic instrument capabilities of each facility. • Kellie Jones (Northparkes Mines), who discussed the application of the TIMA to mining and mineral processing at the Northparkes Cu-Au operation. • Marek Dosbaba (Tescan Orsay Holding), who reviewed the workflow of the TIMA software. However, the record of Precambrian impacts is poorly constrained due to the dynamic nature of plate tectonics, erosion and deposition of younger rocks, which may destroy or cover the evidence of ancient impacts. After delivering a presentation on their recently completed Digital Mineralogy Library project, the Jd LC hosts invited their visitors to offer feedback and discuss opportunities for new projects to further assist researchers in managing and disseminating high-value geochemistry datasets. J., Curran M., Edwards R., Faluvegi G., Ghan S., Horowitz L. R., Ming J., Myhre G., Nagashima T., Naik V., Rumbold S. B., Sudo K., Takemura T., Thevenon F., Xu B., Yoon J.-H. The reidite was discovered using advanced mineral characterisation technologies housed in the John De Laeter Centre (Jd LC) at Curtin University. The response was positive with many participants sharing their views on the importance of data management and discovery, and recognising the contribution that the Jd LC has made in this area.

Thanks to all at Curtin and AXT staff who were involved in the workshop.
Professor Reddy used a technique called electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) to effectively discriminate between reidite and its compositionally identical host zircon. Dr Lesley Wyborn (NCI) was "pleased to see the Jd LC and the community making progress in achieving what [she] has been trying to achieve for the last 30 years in Australian Geochemistry Laboratories ".
