PANalytical Empyrean X-ray Diffraction System

PANalytical Empyrean

National Science Foundation (NSF) Major Research Instrumentation research grant of $452,399 has brought to our lab state-of-the-art X-ray diffraction (XRD) system with unique capabilities. It is able to reveal structures down to the nano-scale, determine thickness of nano-layers, and so much more -- and all that at temperatures ranging from -160 °C to +600 °C. This modern X-ray diffraction system enables cutting-edge research in nanotechnology, physics, materials science, chemistry, electrical engineering, and other areas.
