What to Look for in an X-Ray Diffractometer

X-ray diffraction (XRD) is an analysis technique for determining the crystalline and atomic structures of sample materials, An x-ray diffractometer is the instrument used to carry out this technique. XRD is effective for materials that are either wholly or partially crystalline. It is a powerful and rapid means of analysis. There are several essential qualities you should look for in an x-ray diffractometer: Speed Accuracy Resolution Ease of use Size. How Do X-Ray Diffractometers Work? Because x-rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation, they include wavelengths that you can measure in nanometres. When x-rays scatter from a substance with a…
