Rigaku Rapid 2 Micro-XRD with curved 2D detector



  • Used for phase identification of very small objects (> 30 micrometer), flat polished sections and very small amounts of powder (micrograms)
  • Gandolfi-type movements can be programmed for samples with low numbers of crystallites to analyse a maximum of grain orientations.
