Transmission geometry for Cement hydration kinetics

A PANalytical Theta-Theta diffractometer system equipped with a focussing X-ray mirror, spinner sample stage and a fast linear solid state detector was used for time-resolved transmission measurements of hydrating Portland cements.

X-ray diffraction is one of the most important analytical tools for the investigation of cements and clinkers and their hydration products. Powder diffraction provides essential information about the phase composition of cements and Rietveld refinements enable quantitative analysis.
