XRD – X-ray diffraction

X-Ray diffractometry is used to study crystalline materials. OCAS’s XRD is specifically suitable for phase identification, including grazing incidence and sample spinning, texture and stress analysis. 

Typical applications include

  • Qualitative/quantitative crystalline phase analysis: e.g.retained austenite, oxide analysis
  • Comparative stress measurement after welding, annealing, etc.
  • Texture analysis and evaluation during processing route
