X'Pert PRO Powder Diffractometer (PANalytical)
The working group operates two diffractometers with copper X-rays, which can be used with primary monochromator, hybrid monochromator for capillary measurements as well as divergence slit optics for conventional Bragg-Brentano geometry. The data collection is performed with the aid of X'Celerator detectors.
Both diffractometers are equipped with a reaction chamber (Anton Paar XRK900) for in situ measurements under reaction conditions. The gas flows are adjusted using computerized mass flow controllers. The composition of the product gases can be analyzed directly in a connected gas chromatograph.
