The Rigaku SmartLab System is a high-resolution four-circle X-ray diffractometer. The system is equipped with a 9 kW rotating Cu-K?1 anode and the incident parallel beam optics consist of a reflecting mirror and a two-bounce Ge (220) monochromator (??/? = 3.8x104). Additionally, the system is equipped with an in-plane scattering arm for grazing incidence in-plane surface diffraction measurements.
A customized He-cooled sample cell with a Beryllium dome can be used to perform X-ray diffraction and reflectivity measurements at low temperatures down to 10 K. The XRD system is mainly used to perform:
Reciprocal space maps in order to study strain effects in thin film heterostructures
