Microdiffraction with very high spatial resolution using FOX 2D 25_25 optic at LPS Orsay

lpsorsayA new micro-XRF/micro-XRD instrument was built by the LPS Orsay that enables to capture x-ray diffraction and x-ray fluorescence information with an X-ray microbeam diameter as small as 15 µm by using a FOX 2D CU 25_25 optic with a special collimator and coupled to a fine focus source. The instrument has been used to study the dispersion of clay in natural rubber under strain application.

The good spatial resolution and intensity level achieved with the instrument enable to identify the continuous evolution of the clay nanostructure within the sample depth.
