SPODI: High resolution powder diffractometer

Markus Hoelzel, Anatoliy Senyshyn, Oleksandr Dolotko


The high resolution powder diffractometer SPODI (jointly operated by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and the Technische Universität München) is designed for structure solution and Rietveld refinement of crystal and magnetic structural parameters on polycrystalline powders. Instrumental specification (design, flexibility, peak shape, resolution etc.) as well as a variety of specialized sample environment equipment implemented for in-situ materials characterisation make the instrument attractive for studies of complex ordering phenomena.
