SciMed’s most recent XRD installation was at Northumbria University in the state-of-the-art Materials Characterisation Suite within the Department of Mathematics, Physics & Electrical Engineering. This multiuser environment will complement the Smartlab SE. All Smartlab systems have component recognition, automatic alignment and software driven application setup meaning it’s an ideal system for the department. The Smartlab SE is equipped with Bragg Brentano and parallel beam x-ray optics with capabilities to map the sample surface. The system is also equipped with the very latest software from Rigaku, Smartlab Studio II, making system setup and data interpretation simpler than ever.
Dr Guilaume Zoppi, Associate Professor, Department of Mathematics, Physics and Electrical Engineering said “We are delighted to have worked with SciMed in this project. The Smartlab SE is our workhorse instrument and will be used by 30+ researchers across a broad range of topics, including thin film semiconductors, metallurgy and alloys, museum artefacts, sand and concrete and many more. Considering the diverse base of our users, the simple and intuitive auto-alignment procedure coupled with the recognition of hardware of the Smartlab SE was a key factor during our selection process. We’ve jumped into the 21st century! “
SciMed wish Nothumbria University all the very best with their new system. We are on hand to support with the new system
