Meet the demand for high-precision chemical analysis

X-ray diffraction (XRD) is a versatile, nondestructive analytical technique that’s sensitive to the atomic structure of matter. XRD enables phase identification, quantification, and many more applications used for a diverse array of industrial and research applications.


The Thermo Scientific ARL X-ray diffractometers are designed to meet the stringent structural and phase analysis requirements of today’s industrial and research labs—offering a cost-effective solution for quality control, dynamic studies, formulation determinations, and research and development. These instruments are routinely used by a wide range of applications including geology, polymers, pharmaceuticals, polymers, steel, nanomaterials, semiconductors, forensics, and more.
