XRD Surface Analysis

Applied Technical Services provides XRD surface analysis services to assist clients with material identification for several applications, from reverse engineering to corrosion failure analysis. Our experts in metallurgy conduct XRD testing in compliance with the ASTM D934 standard.
Surface X-Ray Diffraction
Surface XRD, or x-ray diffraction, is an observation method for assessing the molecular orientation or atomic configuration of crystalline surfaces and interfaces. This method also evaluates morphological properties, including facet formation, roughness, and phase transitions. XRD works by radiating monochromatic x-rays through the sample from different angles. The randomly oriented crystalline structures within the sample scatter the x-rays, creating a diffraction pattern that is unique to the sample material. We then compare the pattern to the ICDD (International Centre for Diffraction Data) diffraction pattern database, measuring the data against hundreds of thousands of references to determine the exact compounds comprising the sample.
Benefits of XRD
Crystal structures directly affect a material’s properties and functionality. XRD helps clients to determine their sample’s qualities with precision. ATS conducts XRD testing to assist clients with contaminant identification, metallurgical phase verification, revere engineering for coatings, research and development, material production, and corrosion analysis. X-ray diffraction is a rapid testing method that can analyze metallurgical mounts, powder samples, and certain coatings.
