New Challenges in Non-Ambient XRD: New Solutions from Anton Paar
The investigation of powder or bulk materials under non-ambient conditions is an indispensable technique to obtain full information about the properties of materials. With the current portfolio of non-ambient XRD attachments on the market, a wide range of parameters and experimental requirements can be covered. However, new challenges are creating demand for new hardware solutions in non-ambient XRD.
With the TTK 600 Low-Temperature Chamber we can offer smart innovations for battery research. For non-ambient XRD measurements of raw battery materials – which are often air- and moisture-sensitive – an antechamber lid allows you to load samples in a glove box and transport them in a sealed environment to the TTK 600, which is already mounted on the diffractometer. Additionally, using a special battery sample holder (for reflection or transmission geometry), you can perform operando measurements of coin cells at varying temperatures (between -180 °C and +130 °C).
With the unique combined non-ambient XRD-Raman Chamber, researchers are now able to study different sample materials under non-ambient conditions with two different methods simultaneously. Furthermore, the dedicated Autoclave Chamber allows you to perform in-situ monitoring of hydrothermal reactions at temperatures up to 210 °C and 20 bar pressure abs.
In this presentation, we will cover:
- the latest developments and customized solutions from Anton Paar
- their feasibility for solving new experimental demands
- application examples
- Anyone performing non-ambient XRD experiments
- Anyone interested in Anton Paar’s potential to develop customized solutions for specific experiments
Dr. Barbara Puhr obtained her PhD in Earth Sciences from the University of Graz, with a focus in petrology and geochemistry. Following a post-doctoral fellowship and some years of experience in X-ray diffraction in an industrial R&D facility, she joined Anton Paar in July 2014 and currently works as the product manager for Non-Ambient X-ray attachments.
