The PANalytical X’Pert Pro is a multipurpose x-ray diffractometer equipped with a Cu Kα source. The X’Pert Pro is capable of both high-resolution and lower-resolution measurements and enables a wide range of thin film and powder sample analysis. The X’Pert Pro is a modular system, making it very easy to switch between different measurement modes.
• X-ray diffraction on thin films on small samples and wafers up to 200 mm
• Specular diffraction, high resolution XRD, grazing incidence XRD, etc. for phase analysis, crystal quality, mosaicity, etc.
• 200 mm mapping possibility
• X-ray reflectivity for film thickness, density and roughness
• In-situ heating experiments of small samples up to 1100 °C in nitrogen atmosphere or vacuum
