The Rigaku WAXS (Wide Angle X-ray Scattering) Diffractometer (SEA#103) consists of a RUH3R Copper Target Rotating Anode X-ray Generator, Osmic Blue Confocal Optics with 0.3 or 0.5 mm Collimator, a Single, Phi Axis Goniometer with verticle orientation, and a Rigaku R-Axis IV++ Image Plate Area Detector. The detector imaging area is approximately 380 mm x 380 mm; with the ability to adjust the Sample to Detector distance from 70mm to 450mm. The data collection software is the Rigaku Crystal Clear 2.0 installed on a Windows 7 Pro computer platform. The instrument is useful for conducting XRD measurements of organic and inorganic single crystals (no Low Temp at this time), Polymer scattering, Fiber scattering, and general x-ray measurements requiring a 2-D image output; ie: powder 2-D imaging.
