Rigaku is a Gold Sponsor of the 16th European Powder Diffraction Conference (EPDIC16), being held in Edinburgh from 1st - 4th July 2018.
July 2, 2018 –Edinburgh, Scotland. Rigaku Corporation is pleased to announce its attendance at The 16th European Powder Diffraction Conference (EPDIC16) taking place at the John McIntyre Conference Centre, Edinburgh University.
Established in 1991, EPDIC is a biennial conference that brings together scientists and instrumentation companies to study the latest trends and challenges in powder diffraction, and to discuss progress in academic and industrial research.
The event is dedicated to all aspects of the analysis of polycrystalline materials by diffraction methods. The conference highlights the latest developments in powder diffraction including methodology, data analysis and instrumental advances.
Rigaku - a global leader in X-ray analytical instrumentation - is an exhibitor and Gold Sponsor of the event. Featured at the exhibition is the new next-generation Rigaku SmartLab intelligent multipurpose X-ray diffractometer.
The new SmartLab system is a multi-purpose diffractometer with SAXS and in-plane capabilities. It features the brand new PhotonMax high-flux 9 kW rotating anode X-ray source coupled with a Rigaku HyPix-3000 high-energy-resolution 2D multidimensional semiconductor detector that supports 0D, 1D and 2D measurement modes. The system incorporates a high-resolution θ/θ closed loop goniometer drive system with an available in-plane diffraction arm.
The equipment accepts powder, films, and even textile samples, and allows mapping measurements within a sample. Operando (a.k.a., real time in-situ) measurements can be performed with the new Rigaku SmartLab Studio II software suite, which is an integrated software platform incorporating all functions from measurement to analysis.
On Tuesday 3rd July, a lunch sponsored by Rigaku will take place in the Holyrood room at the conference center.
