X-Ray Data Services

XDS objective  is fourfold:
  • Provide support for the analysis x-ray diffraction data (regardless where they are collected: in companies, public  R & D X-ray laboratory, large facilities such as synchrotron , neutron ,etc. ) for materials, organic , inorganic compound characterization , etc.

  • Provide advice on the optimized methodology and data analysis in the use of diffractometers ( laboratory,  synchrotron , neutron )  to address the challenges posed by both private and public companies and institutions both national and international level.

  • Provide collaboration to research and innovation groups or departments in order to develop scientific projects.

  • Provide advice on the development of diffraction equipment and validation of the good use of them.

General challenges of interest to industries are:

  • Quantitative analysis of mineral phases
  • Polymorphism study
  • Detection limits of crystalline phases
  • Quantification of amorphous phase in crystalline matrices
  • Quantification of  crystalline phases  in amorphous matrices
