XRD peaks identifications

  1. Apr 8, 2017 #1
    I have a sample that was analyzed with x-ray diffraction, the graph had several peaks at different 2θ degrees, how to know if this sample has fluorapatite? I need the answer ASAP please..

    You can look up the relation between angle and energy in the literature, and you can also look up the expected energies from different elements.

    thanks for responding,,, I'll give it a try

    If you're looking for apatite, then why don't you have a standard diffraction pattern to compare it to?
