X-Ray Diffractometer includes Powder X-ray Diffraction (Powder XRD), Grazing Incidence X-Ray Diffraction (GI XRD)

Instrument Details

Make: Bruker D8 ADVANCE with DAVINCI design

Application: X-ray diffraction (XRD) is a rapid analytical technique primarily used for phase identification of a crystalline material and can provide information on unit cell dimensions. X-ray diffraction is most widely used for the identification of unknown crystalline materials (e.g. minerals, inorganic compounds).

Advantage: Qualitative and quantitative phase analysis, crystallography, Molecular structure, crystallite size and strain, structure and relaxation determination, texture and residual stress investigation.
