X-Ray Diffraction with Synchrotron Radiation


The department WPD applies X-ray diffraction methods and provides access for users, especially in the fields of:

• Residual stress analysis
• Texture analysis
• Phase analysis
• Analysis of nano-structures with small-angle scattering

For this we provide high-energy X-rays at our beamlines coming from the synchrotron source PETRA III of DESY in Hamburg. In addition, we provide lab X-ray instruments for pre-characterization of samples.

Beam time at our beamlines can be obtained via the DESY proposal system (door.desy.de). more
