Instrument Details

The Panalytical Empyrean X-ray diffractometer provides crystallographic and compositional information critical to understanding part mechanical performance. It features small- and wide-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS/WAXS) and has the ability to test samples at temperatures ranging from −200 °C to 1100 °C. It can also capture information on texture, residual stress and pair distribution functions.
