Non-ambient components/Applications

The Chimera chamber is designed for in situ powder X-ray diffraction studies of both organic and inorganic compounds at low and medium-high temperatures. Typical applications of the Chimera cryostat are studies of dynamic structural changes or phase transformations, where it is extremely important to move very slowly and accurately through the specific temperature range. In addition to powder XRD, the reflection geometry enables basic measurements of thin films and solids (phase identification, residual stress and basic reflectometry).

CNA Pentos-Cement/Features

Using pulsed fast thermal neutron activation (PFTNA) analysis, the CNA Pentos cross-belt analyzer is able to quickly determine the chemistry of raw materials which enables high-frequency process control. By ’illuminating’ the material with neutrons, the CNA analyzes the bulk of the material on a belt from top to bottom and side to side delivering highly representative data. Pulsed excitation produces high-quality time-resolved gamma ray spectra from the sample. This provides high precision and accuracy with a drastically improved signal-to-noise ratio.
