X-ray powder diffraction is an important characterization technique for materials research and applications. There is an urgent need for a new, state of the art X-ray powder diffractometer for the rapidly growing materials research activities at the department of physical, inorganic and structural (FOOS) Chemistry, Stockholm University. The research projects that require such an equipment cover different types of materials from functional porous materials including zeolites and mesoporous materials, transition metal oxides, ceramics and glasses, intermetallics to metal hydrides for hydrogen storage. The proposed equipment allows for a wide range of applications, from routine materials characterization and phase identification, in situ experiments, study of textured bulk materials, to ab initio structure solution and Rietveld refinement of new materials.
