The benchtop powder X-ray instrument is set up to collect PXRD in reflection mode with a 2θ scan range of 3° to 120°.  The instrument uses Cu radiation and a wide area scintillation counter detection system.  The instrument is operated at the maximum power 600W (40kV – 15mA) and data collection scans can be continuous or step-wise.  A variety of sample preparation techniques can be used and we have three zero background single crystal quartz sample holders.  The system is available for wide-angle, powder, and film x-ray diffraction experiments on samples ranging from minerals to macromolecules.
