High Resolution Powder Diffraction (XRD):

High spatial resolution in a powder diffraction pattern allows for quantitative phase analyses, Rietveld structure refinement, and ab initio crystal structure solutions. We use focussing optics to obtain a sharp CuK?1 pattern with either a point or linear detector. Bruker’s DIFFRAC.EVA software is used for phase analysis and TOPAS is used for phase refinement, structure refinement, or ab initio structure solution.
