Scintag XDS-2000 Pole Figure Diffractometer

Scintag XDS-2000 features:

  • 3-axis Pole figure, Texture, and Stress (PTS) horizontal goniometer configured with an LN2 cooled germanium semiconductor detector
  • Up to twelve samples may be run, each with different scan ranges and rates
  • Extensive database of minerals and other inorganic compounds can be searched for potential matches
  • Samples can be analyzed in many forms, including powders, thin films, crystals, and solutions

Typical Applications:

  • In situ analysis of structural changes as a function of temperature
  • Phase identification possible using ICDD’s PDF-4 database
  • Used to analyze structural characteristics and to identify powders, thin films, and crystals.
  • Purity/quality control of materials and lattice parameter determination
  • Particle size determination and orientation of single crystals
