A high resolution powder diffraction set-up is installed at the focal plane A2 (~ 45 meter from the source). A heavy-duty Theta-2theta diffractometer with a distance from the center to the detector of at least 50 cm has been installed in order to study samples in different environments such as ovens and cryostats. The detector arm is rigid enough to accept heavy detectors (~ 7 kg). Capillary or flat-plate samples is accommodated. Various sample chambers are mounted on the Theta-axis of the diffractometer.
