“Making the most of your X-ray diffraction measurements: Introducing the Anton Paar XRDynamic 500 (located in the NE-MRC in SME B004) and its SAXS and non-ambient capabilities”

Abstract: Anton Paar’s XRDynamic 500, housed in the NE-MRC, pushes the boundary of what an automated multipurpose powder X-ray diffractometer is capable of. With XRD being the gold standard for the investigation of structures at the atomic level, the advanced features and automation offered by XRDynamic 500 bring improvements in data quality and instrument ease-of-use that ensure that even users new to XRD can collect high quality data to answer the challenging questions posed by the structure of their samples. This seminar will give an overview of the XRDynamic 500 system as it is configured at NE-MRC, highlighting not only standard powder XRD capabilities, but also the non-ambient XRD and small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) options, with real-world application examples.
