Want to distinguish cement powder from explosives? Want to “see” the 3-D shape of a protein or polymer? Want to measure nano-scale holes in a molecular filter? How can you do this? The answer is X-ray diffraction
How does an X-ray diffractometer work?
What substances can an X-ray diffractometer identify?
Our lab is equipped with a Siemens D5000 diffractometer.Students and faculty from Forestry and Geology, and also those from Chemistry and from Physics.
Our diffractometer is used for teaching and research — in regular classroom teaching and also for student and faculty research. Students get hands-on experience with the diffractometer. Diffractometers are essential and standard equipment for forensic labs, ceramic companies, drug companies, petroleum companies, cement companies, chemical companies, and more.
