Air Sensitive X-ray Diffraction (XRD)
Energy Storage

X-rays can be used to probe the repeating array of atoms that make up crystal structures; this is done through x-ray diffraction (XRD).
This technique gives researchers information not only about the geometry and size of these repeating structures but also the quality, orientation and thickness of the films being probed. Being a non-destructive technique it can be used on the most precious of samples with high level of reproducibility.
Often materials which are air sensitive are difficult to measure as windows are required to prevent exposure. These windows reduces intensity of the X-rays, increase measurement time, give unwanted peaks and are prone to leaks exposing samples to the air. This Rigaku MiniFlex 600 instrument is sealed in a helium glove box which will improve measurements dramatically.
