Ceram has extended the scope of its microstructural and mineralogical analysis services with the acquisition of an X-ray Diffractometer (XRD).

The XRD system provides faster analysis turnaround, increased resolution, non-powder sample analysis and improved Rietveld refinement, as well as three new techniques: X-Ray reflectivity (XRR); grazing incidence XRD (GIXRD); and micro-diffraction (m-XRD).

XRD provides detailed information on the crystallographic structure, chemical composition and physical properties of materials and thin films.

The technique produces phase identification, phase quantification, degree of crystallinity, crystallite size and unit cell size.

The system will enable Ceram’s clients to understand crystal structures within materials that often control performance properties through mineralogical assemblages and detailed structure; these often prove to be critical.

XRD has many applications, including coated glasses, polymers, silicon wafers, solar cells, filters, catalyst carriers, corroded products and liquid crystal displays.
