ARL™ EQUINOX LAUE X-Ray Diffractometer

The Laue method is mainly used to determine the orientation of large single crystals thanks to a reflected or transmitted radiation through a fixed crystal. For measurements in back reflection, the Thermo Scientific™ ARL™ EQUINOX LAUE X-Ray Diffractometer is a cost-effective solution to meet any need to know crystal orientation in both industrial, research laboratories or teaching in university and colleges.

Thanks to its flexibility of sample placement, ARL EQUINOX LAUE is the perfect instrument adapted to the determination of crystal orientation like ingots, wafer, turbine blades, precious stones, jewelry, etc.

  • Fast Laue patterns can be collected on single crystal samples because the diffraction intensity is very high, so the acquisition time can be shortened.
  • Multiple diffraction can be observed thanks to a high-resolution 2D Laue X-ray camera equipped of a hole in its center to allow the crossing of a collimated X-ray beam.
  • In its basic configuration, ARL EQUINOX LAUE is provided with a sample holder composed by a goniometer head and mounted on a XYZ motorized stage.
  • The goniometer head is compatible with the ARL EQUINOX Laue and a specific model of wire saw so you can transfer easily your crystal from a metrology instrument to the cutting machine and keep the same referential for your sample.
  • Easy and friendly software solution is proposed for the Laue data treatment
  • Applications: crystal orientation on ingots, wafer, turbine blades, precious stones, jewelry, etc.
  • Examples of crystal: Al2O3, YAG, KTP, CdTe, Quartz, Tungsten, CaF2, LiF, etc.
