XRD FAcility (Bruker D8 Focus)

Materials Science and Engineering department houses Bruker D8 Focus instrument for X-ray diffraction studies. The instrument has option of both 0D scintillator detector and 1D LynxEye detector. The 0D detector is useful for grazing incidence diffraction, while 1D detector is more suitable for general powder diffraction. The 2theta range for the equipment is upto 120 degrees.  The equipment is mounted with 2-circle goniometer.
