About Instrument and its applications-
X-ray Diffraction (XRD) is a high-tech, non-destructive technique for analyzing a wide range of materials, including fluids, metals, minerals, polymers, catalysts, plastics, pharmaceuticals, thin-film coatings, ceramics, solar cells and semiconductors. Throughout industry and research institutions, XRD has become an indispensable method for materials investigation, characterization and quality control. Example areas of application include qualitative and quantitative phase analysis, crystallography, structure and relaxation determination, texture and residual stress investigations.
The Bruker D8 X-ray diffract meters are designed to easily accommodate all X-ray diffraction applications in material research, powder diffraction and high resolution diffraction. All new D8 goniometry are equipped with stepper motors with optical encoder to ensure extremely precise angular values. The D8 X-ray Diffractrometer can be used for nearly all X-ray diffraction application, such as structure determination, phase analysis, stress and texture measurement.
