D8 Focus with CuKα radiation (i.e. wavelength of 1.54 Å, see below for details), and 9 position sample changer. LynxEye™ SuperSpeed Detector
Well suited for:
- Useful if you wish to measure your samples straight after production etc.
- For quantification of the phases in the sample using Rietveld refinement.
Not so good for:
- Samples containing cobalt or iron (due to fluorescence). Then the Routine Powder Diffractometer (DaVinci1) is recommended since its detector has better energy discrimination.
