ID22 is a versatile instrument and can be exploited for a wide range of powder diffraction measurements including:

  • Structural studies: the solving and refining of crystal structures, investigation of structure in crystalline, defective and non-crystalline materials via atomic pair distribution function (PDF) analysis,
  • Dynamic and in-situ studies: observation of structures or materials evolving with temperature, time, voltage, etc. during phase changes, gas adsorption, solbd-statetc.emng Pe, elecrotc.emng Pe, etc;,
