Research laboratory of Lithuanian institute offers non-destructive crystal structure analysis services of various materials samples, thin films, powders an etc., using X-ray diffraction technique for construction, energy and other engineering companies. It is possible to obtain crystallographic information of all crystal phase simultaneously. Also, it is possible to perform XRD measurements with in-situ heating (up to 1600 C) and under controlled gas atmosphere (vacuum to 5 bar). Measurements carried out by X-ray diffractometer Bruker D8 Discover: • Working orientation: horizontal or vertical; • Possible configuration: Theta/2Theta, Theta/Theta; • Goniometer diameter (depending on selected configuration and equipment parts): selected at 435, 500, 600 mm or any values in between; • Lowest step size (Theta/2Theta): 0.0001°; • Repeatability (Theta/2Theta): +-0.0001°; • Maximal scan speed: 1500°/min (Theta/2Theta, without additional accesories); • Angular positioning: Stepper motor with optical switching; • Diameter of central Theta: 10 cm; • Angular analysis range (Theta): no generall restrictions but some limitation are possible due to the used parts and accesories; • Angular analysis range (2Theta): from -110° up to 168° (depending on used parts) • Motorised (variable) and fixed divergence and antiscatering slits, 2.5° and 4° soller slits; • 0,12° secondary slits for parallel beam mode. • X-ray diffractometer is equipped with special heating chamber for temperatures from room up to 1600 °C; • XYZ sample stage: (i) X-axis: 150 mm range, 0.01 mm step; (ii) Y-axis: 150 mm range, 0.01 mm step; (iii) Z-axis (vertical): 50 mm range, 0.01 mm step. Knowing costumer need can be prepared a detailed proposal showing complete technical specifications, prices and times. The research team looks for services or subcontracting agreements with the construction, energy companies, engineering, contracting organizations.
Innovations and advantages
Research lab of Lithuanian institute has over 40 years’ experience investigations of metal aging processes and degradation of properties due to the impact of operational factors, development and research of multifunctional materials and composites, testing of materials, assessment and analysis of their qualitative indicators. Research team is applying mechanical tests, X-ray Diffraction (XRD) and elemental composition analysis, as well as optic and scanning electron microscopy, structural and property changes of steel and non-ferrous metal alloys, other materials. Researches participate in various national and international projects (FP7).
