XRD crystallographic analysis in a laboratory

Your needs: to study the atomic composition of your crystalline materials in order to optimize their performance

What is crystallography?

Crystallography analyzes the atomic structure of crystalline substances and materials to understand their properties. Standing in opposition to amorphous solids, the particularity of crystalline materials resides in the way their atoms are assembled in repeating motifs.

Crystallographic texture plays an important role, influencing the performance of the final product. Crystallographic analysis is therefore crucial at all points of a materials lifecycle: upon receiving raw materials to study their composition, to verify the stability of crystalline materials in production processes and to evaluate the quality of the finished product.

What is XRD?

Determination of the atomic structure of crystalline materials is mostly done using X-Ray Diffraction (XRD). This technique makes it possible to characterize the different crystalline materials. These analyses can determine the properties of organic and inorganic crystalline substances such as the distance between atoms, their layout, the identification if crystalline phases or even the size of various crystallites.

Support from a laboratory specializing in material characterization and equipped with the necessary tools will make it possible for you to analyze crystalline materials throughout the lifecycle of a product and to carry out your industrial projects while complying with standards.
