Powder X-ray Diffraction (PXRD) is a non-destructive method used to determine the structure of crystaline materials and to identify the crystaline phases in the compound by way of the crystal structure.

FKF harbors a facility with two Powder X-ray diffractometers.

The Rigaku MiniFlex 600 is an easy to use instrument for routine
measurements and independent measurements by students.

 The PANalytical X’Pert Pro provides a number of advanced measurements.
Such as phase transitioning during heating up to 1200oC,
measurements in vacuum or in an inert athmosphere and
measurements of samples down to a few milligrams.
