Rigaku MiniFlex 600

The Rigaku MiniFlex 600 is a compact benchtop theta:2-theta diffractometer.  It is computer controlled and fully capable of providing qualitative and quantitative analyses for unknown powder crystalline materials.  Its fail-safe radiation enclosure ensures the safety of users operating the machine. By comparing the resulting spectra with diffraction data stored in the computer's card file system, the structure can be identified.  With its straightforward user interface, the MiniFlex easily lends itself to classroom use and is currently being used in undergraduate materials characterization labs at the Ohio State University.
