Rigaku Miniflex XRD

The Rigaku Miniflex X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) System is used for material crystalline characterization. This system includes the following major components; generator: a. High frequency, b. Electronic display panel showing generator and detector electronics status, c. Interlocked radiation enclosure with X-Ray ON lamp. Goniometer: a. Vertical goniometer with coupled 0/20 drive, b. Measure range: at least from 0 to 150 degrees 20, c. Scanning speed: broad (e.g. 0.01 degrees 20 to 100 degrees 20), d. Standard sample stage for a wide range of standard sample holders. Slit Assembly and Detector: a. Continuously variable divergence slit provides exceptional low-angle performance.
