Empyrean 2 (PANalytical) X-ray Diffraction System (Cobalt)

The Empyrean 2 is a Bragg-Brentano geometry X-ray diffractometer that was installed in 2014 and is equipped with the following components:

  • Cobalt anode X-ray tube to minimise fluorescence from iron-containing samples that occurs when using the standard copper X-ray anode
  • High resolution optic for cobalt X-rays to minimise scatter at low angles
  • Sample changer for large batches
