Angstrom Advanced AHTK 1000 high temperature attachment
Automated variable temperature stage for X-ray diffraction measurements of materials at elevated temperatures (room temperature-1200°C). The stage may be operated in vacuum. The sample is heated radiantly for reduced heat gradients within the sample. Automated z translation within the stage assures precise sample positioning even in the presence of thermal expansion of the sample.

  • General diffraction data processing: automatic peak search, manual peak search, integral intensity, separation of Kα1,α2, background remove, pattern smoothing and magnifying, mulriple plot, three-dimensional plot and simulation of XRD pattern.
  • Qualitative Analysis: The data processing software has the search and match function on the base of whole profile and diffraction angle. The whole profile matching procedure employs the designed mode to do the qualitative analysis by reducing the search range from major, minor, to micro phase without indicating the diffraction angle. The diffraction angle matching procedure is based on the peaks position and intensity and usually used for the qualitative analysis of the data with large angle error.
  • Quantitative Analysis: After the phase composition is determined, the content of each phase could be calculated with the help of RIR or/and the Rietveld refinement (Quantitative Analysis without criterion)
  • Plot and Export: The data processing software is operated within the Windows interface. The preparing exported pattern could be labeled, zoomed in, zoomed out and also copied and pasted.
  • Phase identification, structure analysis, Thin film analysis, stress investigation, Texture analysis are all available

One Response to “Angstrom Advanced ADX-2700 X-ray Powder Diffraction Instrument”

  1. Angstrom Advanced Says:

    X-ray diffractometer consist of three basic elements: an X-ray tube, a sample holder, and an X-ray detector.

    When a monochromatic x-ray beam with wavelength l is incident on the lattice planes in a crystal planes in a crystal at an angle q, diffraction occurs only when the distance traveled by the rays reflected from successive planes differs by a complete number n of wavelengths. By varying the angleq, the Bragg’s Law conditions are satisfied by different d-spacing in polycrystalline materials. Plotting the angular positions and intensities of the resultant diffraction peaks produces a pattern which is characterized of the sample. Where a mixture of different phases is present, the diffractogram is formed by addition of the individual patterns.
