X-ray diffraction lab

One of the most important methods of controlling the MBE layers is the so-called. XRD - from the English "X-ray diffractometers" - X-ray diffraction.

The studio is equipped with BRUKER D8 ADVANCE Diffractometer with full data analysis software.

 

BRUKER D8 ADVANCE Diffractometer

The following measurements and exercises are possible in the laboratory:

    Qualitative and quantitative analysis by powder diffraction,
    
Study of polymorphism of materials by powder diffraction at elevated temperatures,
    
Determination of the size and shape of crystallites by X-ray diffraction,
    
Identification of the type and distribution of elements by means of X-ray microanalysis,
    
Orientation of crystals by crystallographic axis,
    
Determination of fixed monocrystals,
    
Determination of mono crystalline solids solids composition.
