Training in the DRX technique for laboratories

Your teams need training in the DRX technique...

What is the principle of X-ray Diffraction?

X-ray Diffraction (XRD) is an analytical technique that allows the study of the different phases of materials and crystalline materials.

The principle of XRD is based on two axes :

  • the identification and quantification of the chemical elements that make up a material
  • access to numerous information contained in the arrangement of the elements within a material

Qualitative analysis allows the identification of the crystalline compounds present in a material as well as their crystallographic forms. As for quantitative analysis, it allows the determination of the contents of these compounds in the trace state as well as in the state of major compounds by refinement according to the Rietveld method or by specific calibration.

Why train in XRD?

The applications of XRD analysis are multiple…you will be able to : 

  • Control of the purity of ceramic materials

  • To highlight the residual austenite in a metal alloy

  • Qualifier des laitiers de fonderie

  • Determination of crystal impurities in a cementitious material

  • Characterize bone substitutes (hydroxyapatite HAP powder according to NF ISO 13779-3 standard)

  • ...
