Instrument Description


The micro-X-ray diffractometer (μXRD) analyzes qualitative and quantitative phases of organic and inorganic compounds and materials, such as:

  1. Ores, minerals, ceramics, cement, construction materials, and soils

  2. Chemicals, pharmaceuticals, biomaterials, plastics, foils, and sheets

  3. Corrosion products, environmental contaminants, and hazardous materials

  4. Metals, alloys, castings, welds, and welded components

  5. Thin films and coatings for the semiconductor industry

Applications


The μXRD can determine:

  • Grain alignment (texture) in polycrystalline materials 

  • Exact orientation in mono-crystalline materials

  • Residual stresses

  • Microstructural properties (i.e., crystallite size, size distribution, microdeformations)

  • Ratio of amorphous and crystalline fractions

  • Precise lattice parameters

Specifications


Typical sample masses are less than 10 g.
