Domed Cooling Stage for Four-Circle Goniometers: DCS 500

The DCS 500 Domed Cooling Stage is the smallest attachment for in-situ X-ray diffraction studies at low and high temperatures on four-circle goniometers and XYZ stages. With a temperature range from -180 °C to +500 °C and a theta angle from almost 0° to 90° 2Θ for all Φangles, DCS 500 is the ideal sample stage for in-situ studies of layered structures and for investigating phase transformations and stress in crystalline material.
