X-Ray Diffraction Analysis

X-Ray Diffraction Analysis (XRD) investigates crystalline material structure, including atomic arrangement, crystallite size, and imperfections.

Intertek XRD analysis and expertise is available for a very wide range of sample types and applications.

XRD analysis provides:

  • Analysis of Solids, Powders and Liquids
  • Reflection, Transmission or Capillary Geometry In-Situ High Temperature and Reactive Environment
  • Orientation and Texture Data
  • Grazing Incidence
  • Reflectometry
  • Kratky Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS)

XRD analysis applications:

  • Nano-Materials:
    Phase Composition, Crystallite size and shape, Lattice Distortions and Faulting, Composition Variations, Orientation, In-Situ Structure Development
  • Catalyst evaluation
  • Reservoir core analysis
  • Fuel quality testing
  • New materials research and development
  • Polymers and Composites: Crystalline form, Crystallinity, Crystalline Perfection, Orientation
  • Pharmaceuticals and Organics: Polymorphs, Crystallinity, Orientation

XRD analytical expertise:

  • XRD Studies under Process Conditions
  • XRD to either Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) or Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) Standards
  • Nano-scale Structure, Crystallite Size and Shape, Lattice Distortion and Faulting
  • Crystalline materials information includes phase composition, structure variations (solid solutions and polymorphs), crystallinity & orientation Non-crystalline periodicity, size and orientation.
  • Additional XRD analytical solutions
