Single-crystal alignment is available for samples that require measurement strategies concerning a certain orientation axis. A computerized automatic diffractometer (CAD-4) system will be used to determine the crystal orientation based on X-ray diffraction data collected. The orientation of the full reciprocal lattice is obtained. Crystal cutting and polishing capabilities on the oriented specimens are also available.
The automated diffractometer (CAD-4, four independent axes) can collect X-ray diffraction data from single-crystal specimens up to 12mm in size, with high precision, flexibility and reliability. Crystals are mounted on a goniometer head and aligned on the diffractometer. If needed, the goniometer head can be transferred to either a cutting or polishing jig for obtaining a defined sample shape. Precision better than 1 degree can be obtained.
