X-ray Diffraction (XRD)


XRD is the only laboratory technique that reveals structural information, such as chemical composition, crystal structure, crystallite size, strain, preferred orientation and layer thickness. Materials researchers therefore use XRD to analyze a wide range of materials, from powders and solids to thin films and nanomaterials.
