Investigation of the crystal structure of the pyroxene LiCrGe2O6

Bragg-BrentanoHD is your ideal partner for high-resolution crystallography

The use of the Empyrean diffractometer in combination with the Bragg-BrentanoHD optical module enables us to pin down the real crystal structure of one important member of a mineral family.

Pyroxenes form a large family of materials which have been investigated for decades due to their importance in mineralogy. Olivines and pyroxenes form the vast majority of the earth’s mantle. Consequently, the temperature, pressure and chemical composition effects on the crystal structure of these materials continue to be the subject of intensive research.
