Description:

Siemens D5005, with quartz primary monochromator and CuKα1 radiation. Scintillation detector. Optimised for high quality powder data collection.

Well suited for:
  • Collection of data for structure solution and/or Rietveld refinement
  • Investigation of strain and crystallite size effects (due to tight and symmetrical line-shape characteristics of the instrument).
Not so good for:
  • Samples containing fluorescing elements (Fe, Co, Mn), depending on the concentration.

  • Data collection from 0.5° (but 15°-20° in normal mode) to 140° 2θ
  • 2.5° primary and secondary Soller slits
  • Rotating single sample holder with user selectable rotation speeds
