SMALL ANGLE X-RAY SCATTERING INSTRUMENT
The WA SAXS facility houses a Bruker NANOSTAR SAXS instrument comprising an Excillum MetalJet high-intensity X-ray source, in-vacuum specimen chamber, and a two-dimensional photon counting detector, capable of covering a q-range of 0.008 – 1.25 Å-1. The instrument was purchased in 2015 through a LIEF application lead by Prof. Craig Buckley.
D8 ADVANCE XRD
The D8A is an X-ray Diffractometer (XRD) with a copper x-ray source and an automated 45 position sample changer. It features a LynxEye position sensitive detector that is 200 times faster than a conventional scintillator detector, allowing collection of superior data in a short time-frame.
D8 DISCOVER XRD
The D8D is an X-ray Diffractometer (XRD) with a cobalt x-ray source and automated 10 position sample changer. The cobalt source allows this instrument to accurately analyse high iron content samples such as iron ores.
