      • CoKα X-ray sealed tube (focus size - 0.4 x 12 mm);

      • Rated operation X-ray sources: 40 kV/30 mA;

      • Vertical Theta / Theta goniometer radius of 185 mm:

           • 2θ angle ranges from -3 to +162 °;

           • Scanning method – related θs / θd or θs, θd independent;

           • min scanning step value 0.0001°;

      • High Energy-detector of the reflected X-rays DTEX / ULTRA:

           • 512 recording channels;

           • dynamic range of at least 105 pulses / s per channel;

      • Optical system:

           • manual gap on the output beam;

           • manual gap on the diffracted beam;

           • manual receiving slit;

           • automatic adjustment of the tube height, goniometer, optics and detector;


The PDXL software package - provides an opportunity for a different analysis, for example, automatic qualitative phase analysis, quantitative phase analysis, refining unit cell parameters.
