Probing Atomic Structures

X-RAY DIFFRACTION

SERVICES

 

We offer training on our instruments and analytical software for individuals who want to perform their own experiments.  If you would rather have us perform the measurements and/or analyze the data for you, that option is also available.

HARDWARE

 

We have the following instruments

in the facility:

​1.  Malvern Panalytical Empyrean   (Cu and Co sources)

2.  Malvern Panalytical X'Pert3 MRD (Cu source)

ABOUT US

We are the Joint Institute for Advanced Materials (JIAM) Diffraction Facility, located at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville.  Individuals from academia, national labs, and industry utilize the facility to perform a wide range of experiments.  Basic usage revolves around the identification and quantification of phases, crystallinity, lattice parameters, crystallite size, and microstrain.  More advanced uses include high-temperature in-situ experiments, investigating preferred orientation with pole figures, determining residual stresses, and studying thin films with X-ray reflectivity, among others.  If you would like more information or have any questions, you can fill out the "Contact Us" form below or find staff email addresses by clicking the button below (which will take you to the "People" page).
