XRD Testing Labs
Applied Technical Services is a leader among XRD testing labs. We provide XRD, or x-ray diffraction, services for numerous applications, from corrosion failure analysis to reverse engineering. Our metallurgical experts complete testing according to ASTM D934 guidelines.
X-ray diffraction is an analytical technique that identifies and provides information about crystalline materials such as minerals or inorganic compounds. XRD scatters monochromatic x-rays through a sample material with randomly oriented crystal structures. The diffractometer reads the intensity of the diffracted x-rays from several angles, gathering a diffraction pattern that is characteristic of the sample material. ATS runs the pattern against the International Centre for Diffraction Data (ICDD) diffraction pattern database, which supplies hundreds of thousands of reference patterns, to determine exactly which compounds are present.
Crystal structures largely influence material properties and function. XRD allows clients to precisely determine their material’s qualities. XRD testing can assist clients with metallurgical phase verification, corrosion analysis, research and development, contaminant identification, reverse engineering for coatings, and material production. This rapid testing method can analyze powder samples with approximately dime-sized packed volumes, as well as certain coatings and metallurgical mounts.
