Instrument's Description

X-ray Diffraction (XRD) is a high-tech, non-destructive technique for analysing a wide range of materials, including metals, minerals, polymers, catalysts, plastics, pharmaceuticals, thin-film coatings, ceramics, solar cells and semiconductors. Throughout industry and research institutions, XRD has become an indispensable method for materials investigation, characterization and quality control. More specifically, areas of application include qualitative and quantitative phase analysis, crystallography, structure determination, texture and residual stress investigations. Currently, we use the Bruker D8 X-ray diffractometer which is designed to easily accommodate all X-ray diffraction applications in material research, powder diffraction and high resolution diffraction. All new D8 goniometry are equipped with stepper motors with optical encoder to ensure extremely precise angular values.

Sample Description
All solid samples in powder (1 g.) form and thin film will be acceptable for XRD.
