Unformatted text preview: UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, DAVIS Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science EMS 162L: Structure and Characterization of Materials Laboratory LAB EXPERIMENT #5 – X-RAY DIFFRACTION OF A KNOWN SAMPLE Winter 2010 Purpose : The purpose of this laboratory is to introduce you to x-ray diffraction. You will become familiar with the operation of an x-ray diffractometer and with the interpretation of x-ray diffraction data. Equipment and Safety : The equipment you will be using in this laboratory is a Scintag XDS 2000 x-ray diffractometer. The x-rays are generated by a 2.2kW copper source with typical operating conditions of -45kV and 40 mA and stand by conditions of -10kV and 2 mA. During the lecture session, you were given detailed information on the health risks associated with exposure to x-rays and the safety procedures related to the use of this equipment. Because you will not be officially certified to use the equipment and will not be issued dosimetry, you will not be permitted to place your hands or any other part of your body inside the diffractometer and you must be accompanied by a certified user at all times. You will be permitted to observe the diffractometer while in operation and to control the diffractometer via the computer interface. operation and to control the diffractometer via the computer interface....
