Anton Paar XRK 900 is a furnace-type heater optimized for in situ powder X-ray diffraction measurements (reflection geometry) at various gas atmospheres in the pressure range from 1 mbar to 10 bars. Due to environmental heating to 900 ºC, high temperature uniformity is guaranteed over the entire sample volume. The thermocouple is placed right underneath the sample for accurate temperature measurement and control. Optional oscillation of the sample table helps to improve the particle statistics for powder XRD in reflection geometry. Sample holders allowing for gas flow through the sample ensure a maximum reaction surface. A special sample holder unit with an additional electrical feed through for battery research at temperatures to 260 ºC is available.
Unique solution for studies of gas-solid reactions
XRK 900 is a dedicated chamber for in situ X-ray diffraction studies of solid-state and solid-state-gas reactions at high temperature and moderate pressure. An optional sample holder unit with electrical feed through enables high-temperature in situ battery research. Furthermore, basic thin film analysis and residual stress measurements can be performed using this chamber.
