XRD purchase

  1. May 22, 2009 #1
    Hi everybody,
    we are looking for powder XRD purchase to our University. Is anyone tell me what firm is better, what kind of accessories to purchase? I heard that Panalytical made some device for nanomaterials size measurements. Anybody knows how does it works and is this good?
    Thanks a lot.

    You might get better help if you provide additional information, such as your location, budget, anticipated application/materials.

    From my Prof., I understood that there is no questions about the budget.
    Required analysis for new synthesized ceramic and metallic powders, nano powders, some metallic and polimeric surfaces, bulk metals (I'm talking about new phases formation in cast metals such as Al alloys).

    If your university is in the US, I would recommend you get professional help from XRD experts, such as this group: http://www.xrd.us/services/consulting.htm

    If not, you should have the primary operator make a decision based on needs and prior experience. A lot depends on your location and which suppliers operate there and provide installation/repair/maintenance/training services.
