UK CME XRD Facility
X-ray diffraction is an important characterization tool for all ordered material, hence the need for a shared user facility to serve the UK and neighboring community. Nominal user fees are charged to assure proper maintenance. For more information contact the director below.
Director: Prof. Tony Zhai (859) 257-4958 e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
All users must undergo proper X-ray safety safety training as given by UK Occupational Health and Safety.
On a single shared Cu target x-ray source:
Rigaku powder diffraction with NaCl crystal energy filter. Extensive powder diffraction data base for phase identification.
3-axis goniometer with texture analysis software (automatic pole figure data collection). Suitable for single crystal characterization.
