PANalytical X'Pert Powder

Structure analysis on powders (WAXD)


  • Powders: single & multi-phase systems

Structural parameters:

  • Qualitative phase analysis
  • Quantitative phase analysis
  • Ab-initio structure determination


  • 2Theta/Theta scans: in capillaries and flat sample holders
  • High temperature experiments can be conducted: T<600°C
  • Reactions (reactive gases: H2, C2H4, NH3) can be conducted

Working principle:

With the PANalytical X'Pert Powder, experiments with powders in solids and suspensions can be conducted.

We collaborate within the frame of national and international projects and support research inside and outside Empa based on mutual agreement and interest.
