High resolution XRD

Small and large angle X-ray scattering (SAXS and WAXS)

X-ray diffraction (XRD) and the analogous techniques of small and large angle X-ray scattering (SAXS and WAXS) are high-tech, non-destructive methods for analyzing a wide range of materials, including fluids, metals, minerals, polymers, catalysts, plastics, ceramics, pharmaceuticals, thin-film coatings, and semiconductors. Theses techniques have become indispensable for materials investigation, characterization and quality control (QC). Example applications include phase analysis, crystalline structure and relaxation determination, texture and residual stress investigations, R&D for nano-materials, and polymorph screening. Whether research or production QC and engineering, Rigaku offers a range of instruments, developed in co-operation with academic and industrial users, which provide the most technically advanced, and cost-effective X-ray solutions available today.
