Unfortunately there is a problem with the goniometer on DaVinci1, meaning that there will be a slight shift of the peaks (it is different for different angles) compared to the database.

How to analyse the data with best possible result

EVA Search and Match (fingerprinting)

(Still working on it! Sorry for the delay.)

Topas (Pawley and Rietveld fitting)

After importing your data, you need to edit the following fields under "Corrections"

  • Zero error = -0.1308 (Fixed)
  • Sample displacement: For a perfectly mounted sample, the sample height is -0.3201 mm. However, this value you can refine to fit your sample.

These values have been found by using the NIST 1967a corundum standard.

Example: How to refine for a LaB6 sample (coated on Si-wafer). Keep Zero error fixed at 0.1308, whilst refine the sample height.
