X-ray diffractometry in DC Fields

An X-ray diffraction instrument is available at the 25 Tesla Florida Split Coil Magnet at the NHMFL and allows studying magnetostructural transformations in the temperature range ~10 K - 300 K.

A sample probe is equipped with a one-axis rotator and is suitable for studying powder and crystalline samples, but the latter should be properly oriented before mounting on the sample holder due to the angular limitations of the probe and the output windows. The scattering vector is perpendicular to the magnetic field axis.
