Europe 600 Benchtop X-ray Diffractometer XRD

Europe 600 Benchtop X-ray Diffractometer XRD

Stock Status: Temporary sold out


Europe is the new GNR Benchtop Theta/2Theta powder diffraction system for XRD qualitative and quantitative analysis of polycrystalline materials.

With an achievable FWHM peak resolution < 0.04° 2Θ and an angular accuracy < ± 0.015° over the whole 2theta angular range, Europe guarantees the necessary level of performance for the most demanding x-ray diffraction

material investigation in a compact and low cost configuration.

Europe is capable to perform these measurements:

  • Qualitative and Quantitative Crystalline Phase Analysis 
  • Degree of Crystallinity Calculation 
  • Polymorph Screening 
  • Cell parameters, Crystallite size and Lattice strain determination 
  • Rietveld refnement for structural characterization 
  • Retained Austenite Quantifcation


  • Compact Size: its compact size and robust design enable installation in a lab bench and operations in a small space.
  • Theta/2Theta Goniometer: GNR develops an ultra-compact goniometer that, adopting stepper motors with optical encoders, ensure extremely precise angular positioning. The double axis goniometer provides two indipendent angular degrees of freedom with common centre of rotation.
  • Optics: X-Ray beam collimation is obtained by variable slits that guarantee a perfect alignment of the beam in the equatorial direction, while in the axial direction the divergence is limited by soller slits. Europe can mount glass and ceramic X-Ray tubes with high reproducibility and stability of focus position.
  • X-Ray Detectors: Nal(TI) Scintillation Counter / Fast Detector
  • Sample holders: several sample holders are available to meet the specific needs of each laboratory (Rotating Sample Stage, Standard and Custom Sample Holders, Air Sensitive Sample Holder, 6 Position Automatic Sample Changer).
