Capabilities

This theta-theta configured goniometer permits automated collection of intensity vs. scattering angle scans. Data reduction schemes include unit cell determination, pattern indexing, precision lattice parameter determination, and Reitveld analysis. Crystalline compounds can be identified through indexing with the built-in JCPDS powder diffraction database.
