The training and research facility based on three desktop powder diffractometers Rigaku «MiniFlex II»

Desktop powder diffractometers for qualitative and quantitative phase analysis of polycrystals within the θ / 2θ scanning geometry using Cupper or Cobalt characteristic wavelengths

Technical charachteristics:

  • CuKα and CoKα X-ray sealed tubes (focus size - 1.0 x 10 mm);
  • Rated operation X-ray sources: 30 kV/10 mA;
  • Vertical Theta / 2Theta goniometer radius of 150 mm:
    • 2θ angle ranges from -3 to +145 °;
    • Scanning method – related θs / θd;
    • Maximum scanning speed 100 ° / min;
  • High Energy-detector of the reflected X-rays DTEX / ULTRA:
    • 512 recording channels;
    • dynamic range of at least 105 pulses / s per channel;
  • Optical System:
    • manual gap on the output beam;
    • manual gap on the diffracted beam;
    • manual receiving slit;


The PDXL software package - provides an opportunity for a different analysis, for example, automatic qualitative phase analysis, quantitative phase analysis, refining unit cell parameters.
