Rapidly orient and characterize single crystals in a matter of seconds!
Ideal replacement for the Polaroid XR-7 back-reflection cassette (film no longer available)
Northstar 7 software indexes Laue images from cubic, hexagonal, ...triclinic crystal systems and generates stereographic projections
Provides an accuracy of 0.25° in standard mode and 0.05° in high-resolution mode
Applications include: silicon, gallium arsenide, high-Tc superconductors, sapphire, geological minerals, turbine blades, etc. and detecting grain boundaries
Ideal for industrial process control, research applications, or academic laboratories
Earlier model MWL110 systems can be upgraded to 120 capability
The MWL120 allows an operator to orient single crystals quickly and easily. Manipulate the orientation of a crystal sample using our joystick-controlled motorized stages and see the diffraction pattern move in real time on a computer monitor to rapidly characterize or determine the orientation of the crystal's lattice planes.
The MWL120 system uses the back-reflection Laue method. The Laue camera interfaces with an X-ray tower and collimates the beam through the center of the camera toward the crystal sample. These X-rays then reflect off the sample back to the detector where the diffraction pattern is collected. This information is piped to a computer running NorthStar 7 — the latest version of our powerful orientation software — and is displayed in real time.
