The Malvern-Panalytical EMPYREAN X-ray diffractometer is equipped with a Mo or Cu - LLF tube, an Anton Paar HTK 1200N high-temperature furnace chamber and a state-of-the-art X-ray detection system, the GaliPIX3D (with almost 100% efficiency for high-energy Mo radiation).
This arrangement enables high quality & high resolution data acquisition for room and high temperature experiments (up to 1200 °C in the air) in reflection or transmission geometry.ie

The Malvern-Panalytical EMPYREAN X-ray diffractometer is equipped with a Mo-LFF tube (or Cu tube), a rotation sample shaft for CT and a state-of-the-art detection system, the GaliPIX3D, capable of collecting data suitable for 3D processing in computed tomography.
Computed tomography (CT) offers the possibility to analyze and visualize different properties (e.g. quantity/type/connectivity of pores, cracks, inclusions, mineral distribution, preferred directions, wall thickness, surface) quickly and non-destructively by three-dimensional virtual reconstructions of the sample.
1) Mo or Cu LFF tube in point focus, 2) Incident Beam Optics & Filters, 3) CT rotation sample shaft, 4) Sample holder with sample, 5) GaliPIX3D detector
Experimental parameters (anode material, voltage/current, filter materials, rotation range, step size, time per step, PHD values) can be set according to the sample.
The 3D pore size distribution (which has an influence on strength, permeability, density, thermal insulation, etc.) can be determined and visualized with CT on an X-ray diffractometer in the laboratory
