Powder diffractometer Panalytical X?Pert PRO

Powder diffractometer Panalytical X'Pert PRO

This powder diffractometer works in Bragg-Brentano geometry with Cu-Kα radiation. The sample holder is always in horizontal position. Spinning of the sample holder is possible, with an adjustable spinning rate. The height of the sample holder is accurate to 1 µm. Normal data collection times range from a few minutes to hours.

Powder diffractometer Panalytical X?Pert alpha1

Powder diffractometer Panalytical X'Pert alpha1

This powder diffractometer is set in Theta-2Theta geometry and equipped with a focusing Johansson Ge monochromator producing pure Cu-Kα1 radiation. Tube position is fixed while the PIXCEL detector is moving. The sample holder is rotated and accurate within 1 µm sample height position. Data collection times range from minutes to about 10 h for high quality data sets suitable for Rietveld refinements. Only ambient conditions room temperature measurements can be performed.

Single Crystal X-ray Diffractometer Xcalibur-III

Single Crystal diffractometer Xcalibur-III

Xcalibur III is a 4-circle kappa geometry diffractometer equipped with Sapphire 3 CCD detector. Data collection can be performed on crystals with sizes between 0.01 – 0.3 mm. Data collection times may range from 2 to 20 h, depending on the size and quality of the crystals. Absorption correction and visualization of crystals at different orientations can be done by recording a set of images with the attached CCD camera.
