X-ray diffractometer Bruker D2 Phaser

The D2 PHASER is a novel desktop X-ray diffractometer enabling the analysis of poly-crystalline material (ores, industrial minerals, process residues). The new and very easy-to-use workflow software DIFFRAC.SUITE allows measurement and analysis right out of the box. Equipped with the state-of-the-art, energy dispersive LYNXEYE XE-T detector which is capable of delivering data quality not possible with any other benchtop XRD system on the market, i.e. virtual elimination of background from sample fluorescence and Bremsstrahlung scattering, significantly improved peak to background boosting lower limits of detection and quantification, clean diffraction line profile shapes without metal filter artefacts to improve peak fitting results and accuracy in quantitative phase analysis.

Welcome to SOLVOMET

SOLVOMET is KU Leuven’s Centre for Solvometallurgy. SOLVOMET’s mission is to support its industrial and RTD partners in the conceptual and practical development of more sustainable solvometallurgical separation processes and new mining chemicals, which are subsequently tested using state-of-the-art lab-scale and mini pilot-scale experimental facilities.
