Project description

A consortium of WE06 (Chemistry) and WE04 (Solid State Sciences) asks for a high-throughput powder XRD setup. The number of samples to be analyzed has increased with a factor 10 in the last decade, far beyond the current capacity for two older machines (without sample changer), that are also already “out of service”. One high-throughput machine with automatic sample changer increases the capacity enormously.
