Thin Film and Materials Diffraction

A state of the art 5 axis diffractometer with a 9kW rotating anode allow us to do many measurements far outside of the traditional powder diffraction realm.

These are extremely relevant to engineered materials and devices where structure is critical to performance. A modular instrument allows us to tackle a massive range of sample shapes, sizes, complexity and internal structure to answer such questions as how thick is the oxide layer on my thin film, what orientation are the epitaxial layers in my magneto device and what are the residual stresses in a pressure vessel.

It is not feasible to detail all possibilities here, so please contact us to discuss your characterisation needs.

Individual tailored quotes are prepared based on the specific sample and experimental requirements (following discussions). Prices start from £200 for basic characterisation.
