96-cell microplate reader

SEM provides detailed high-resolution images of the sample by rastering a focussed electron beam across the surface and detecting secondary or backscattered electron signal.

Powder XRD provides detailed information on the crystallographic structure and physical properties of materials and thin films.The sample is irradiated with a beam of monochromatic x-rays over a variable incident angle range.  Interaction with atoms in the sample results in diffracted x-rays when the Bragg equation is satisfied.  Resulting spectra are characteristic of chemical composition and phase.  The technique uniquely provides phase identification (e.g. graphite or diamond), along with phase quantification, % crystallinity, crystallite size and unit cell size.  For layered materials, Grazing Incidence XRD (GIXRD) allows compositional depth profiling of phases within the structure.
