    Description

    The system at the CMCA is an Empyrean multi-purpose research diffractometer. It is aimed primarily at materials research but is very flexible, having options covering a large number of techniques. The radiation is Copper K alpha and the instrument is equipped with a wide range of collimators, monochrometers, detector systems and a high-precision, multi-purpose, five-axis sample stage. A computer control system operates the instrument and includes analysis software for all modes of operation.
