The handheld diffractometer also comprises a sample monitoring and alignment system that allows an operator to observe the measuring area and to align the diffractometer to the sample from outside of the housing.
The diffractometer has particular use for routine quality control measurements.
A diffractometer, having variable centre and suitable for performing analysis on hidden or hardly accessible bodies or specimens is described.
The method and the diffractometer are characterised in that the detector (3) is a virtual pixellated detector.
Diffractometer and method for diffraction analysis making use of two Euler cradles, a primary and a secondary Euler cradle.
The invention relates to an energy dispersive diffraction arrangement comprising a receiving means (12) for receiving a sample (13).
System and method for correcting field curvature in a catadioptric objective that may be used within an inspection apparatus such as a scatterometer.
