Output Enablers is proud to announce a full line of powder diffraction sample holders for the Siemens/Bruker D500/D5000 Zero Degree 40 Position Sample Changers (others may also be available on a custom basis).
Feel free to contact us via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or comments not covered in the following breakdown of the parts and prices.
Borosilicate glass mounted 0.002" recessed from the face.
Samples can be mounted with a low boiling point solvent like methanol or with vaseline.
|Frosted Face Mount||
Frosted borosilicate glass mounted flush with the face.
Samples can be mounted by the pull method where the powder sample is placed on the frosted glass, and a microscope slide is slid across the sample to impregnate it into the surface (this technique minimizes prefered orientation complications).
Borosilicate glass mounted flush with the back surface.
Intended for non-powder samples (odd shaped, and samples on substrates). Sample can be placed on oil-based clay in cavity, turned upsidedown, and pressed against a smooth flat surface to adjust sample height.
|Quartz Low Background, Face Mount||
Off-axis Quartz crystal mounted 0.002" recessed from the face.
Samples can be mounted with a low boiling point solvent like methanol or with vaseline. Intended for poorly diffracting samples, or when only a small portion of the exposed area is illuminated with X-rays as there will be significantly less scattering off this surface than the borosilicate glass.
Regular Siemens/Bruker Sample Holders.
Entire cavity must be filled flush with the top surface. This is often a challenge as this requires quite a bit of material, and powders rarely stay in place at high angles where they pour out onto the other samples in the sample changer.
