D8 Discover XRD

X-Ray Diffraction and Scattering Facility

  • Manufacturer: Bruker AXS
  • Model: D8 Discover
  • Year: 2009
  • Building: 301
  • Room: 203

Power diffraction X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) and optional grazing incidence diffraction (GID) and reflectometry (XR) of thin films.

  • Goebel mirror provides intense and parallel beam necessary for XRD work.
  • LynxEye detector available for rapid detection.
  • In-plane and out-of-plane collection modes available.
  • Customised stage allows for an anti-vibration stage and Langmuir trough to be added for films on liquids.
  • A laser system can monitor changes in the liquid level during data collection.
  • Currently configured for powder diffraction.
  • Uses a Cobalt X-Ray tube.
