Main optics: soller slits, divergence slit, scatter slit, receiving slit, detector slit, curved graphite monochromator, scintillation detector


  • Powder and polycrystalline bulk materials; limited applicability to soft samples.
  • Phase identification, composition quantification, crystallographic structure determination.
  • Crystallite / grain size and strain analysis.
  • Limited texture (preferred orientation) analysis.
