Short Description

The Bruker D8 Advance Powder X-ray diffractometer is a device for the phase-analytic and structural characterization of powders and thin films.
It is equipped with a fast detector and allows measurements in the transmission and reflection mode. The device is additionally equipped with a multi-sample changer.

Methods & Expertise for Research Infrastructure

The x-ray powder diffractometry is the standard method for the qualitative and quantitative determination of the phase stock of powdered samples. It is a versatile, non-destructive method that can also provide detailed information on the atomic structure (crystal structure) of both naturally occurring and synthetically produced materials.
With the aid of appropriate software, Rietveld refinements of the measurement results can be carried out and thus quantitative phase compositions can be determined and crystal structures refined. Applications are found in the area of phase identification, e.g. flue gas cleaning and filter residues, ceramics, paints, rocks, antique finds, sediments, and clay mineral analysis, as well as quantitative phase determination, e.g. for cement clinker, ore or for phase conversion in chemical reactions. With this diffractometer, small angle measurements and measurements in transmission can also be carried out.
