The instrument Diffraction is a 6-circle goniometer in psi-geometry. The sample is mounted on a motorized stage that allows movement in all directions. Two detectors are available: A scintillation detector (Cyberstar) and an area detector (Bruker Vantec 2000). 2Θ angles up to 140° are accessible with the area detector. The instrument is located at the KMC-2 beamline, which provides X-ray radiation with very stable energies in the range between 4 and 14 keV. This combination covers most scattering requirements.Selected Applications:
- Rietveld analysis of the low-temperature phase transitions of metalorganic perovskite semiconductors
- Determination of cation distribution in sulfide semiconductors by anomalous powder diffraction and MEAD
- High-temperature evolution of lattice misfits in high-entropy alloys
- Structural analysis of gas adsorption into mesoporous metal–organic frameworks
- Tensile stress and cracking behavior of metallic bi-layers on polymer substrates from sin2ψ analysis

Remote Access details
Yes. Both control stations of KMC-2 diffraction can be operated remotely using NoMachine. The beamshutter still has to be opened manually.
