Desktop powder diffractometers for qualitative and quantitative phase analysis of polycrystals within the θ / 2θ scanning geometry using Cupper or Cobalt characteristic wavelengths.

Technical charachteristics

  • CuKα and CoKα X-ray sealed tubes (focus size – 1.0 x 10 mm).
  • Rated operation X-ray sources – 30 kV / 10 mA.
  • Vertical Theta / 2Theta goniometer radius of 150 mm:
    • 2θ angle ranges from -3 to +145°;
    • scanning method – related θs / θd;
    • maximum scanning speed – 100°/min;
  • 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.


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