Lab Equipment and Apparatus:
XRD Equipment: Panalytical Empyrean          XRD
This multi-purpose x-ray diffractometer can be used to analyze powders, thin films, nanomaterials and solid objects.  The PreFIX concept for optics and stages allows changes in variables and applications without the need to realign the system.
More information about the XRD is available from Panalytical at www.panalytical.com/Empyrean.htm.
XRF Equipment: Bruker Tracer III-SD X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometer                xrf
This handheld XRF allows for x-ray diffraction and elemental analysis of samples with greater flexibility over bench-top models while using the same vacuum technology.  The XRF also utilizes lap-top based analytical software with live spectral displays and complete peak identification.
More information about the XRF is avaialble from Bruker at www.bruker.com.
