Location: ACMS 106

The X-Ray Diffraction Facility in Room No. 106 at ACMS has three state of the art X-ray diffractometers which offer a wide range of materials characterization using X-rays for bulk materials, nano materials as well as thin films. The facility offers;

a) Ambient and high temperature (1400 Degree Celsius) powder/polycrystalline diffraction
b) Grazing incidence diffraction for thin films
c) Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS)

Instrument: PAN alytical XRD

Panalytical XPert for ultra-fast X-ray diffraction on bulk and powder samples using line detector (with in-situ high temperature stage, limited Small Angle X-Ray Scattering and thin film capability)

Instrument: Two Circle Diffractometer

Rigaku MiniFlex 600 for routine polycrystalline X-Ray Diffraction (phase determination, precise lattice parameter determination, crystallite size and strain determination)

How to book slots

XRD slots can only be booked online in three steps.
