Tensile Stage: TS 600 - sample stage for in-situ X-ray diffraction studies of stress/strain phenomena in fibers, foils and thin films

Tensile Stage: TS 600

The TS 600 Tensile Stage is a completely new, advanced sample stage for in-situ X-ray diffraction studies of stress/strain phenomena in fibers, foils and thin films. It is the first commercial sample stage specifically designed for in-situ XRD investigations of structural changes in materials under mechanical load. Because of its compactness and low weight, the instrument can be used on synchotrons as well as on laboratory X-ray diffractometers. And what’s more, it can be operated in transmission and reflection mode to gain new insights into the world of strain and stress.
