Abstract

Outlined are design features of a versatile high-resolution two-axis diffractometer that is being constructed for operation at the Photon Factory as an Australian national facility. The instrument features optional use of multiple-imaging plates on a translating cassette to allow rapid recording of an almost complete range of data covering both the high-angle and small-angle scattering regime or alternatively the use of electronic detectors. The instrument will be capable of operation in various modes including the following: (i) high-resolution powder diffraction with single-channel counter and crystal analyzer, (ii) high-resolution, high-speed powder diffraction in the Debye-Scherrer mode ..
