# Facility Specification Best suit for
1 Powder Diffractometer (PD3) Neutron Powder Diffractometer-PD-III, (Wavelenghts 1.48Å , 2.31Å), Temp. Range: 2K to 300K, Mag. Field: +/- 7 Tesla Powder sample ~ 3-4 grams (~ 1 cc volume), or Pellets of 6mm diameter - no such that total height 3- 4 cm, metallic sample (chunks < 6mm in any direction)
2 Powder X-ray Diffractometer (D2 Phaser) Powder X-ray diffractometer for solids (powder) samples. Well grounded powder ( < 1 gm)
3 High Energy Planetary Ball Mill Dual jar. Maximum disk speed of 1300 rpm. Choice of jars/ balls are: WC, ZrO2, Agate 5 - 10 grams
4 Mini Arc Melter For preparing alloys and intermetallic samples ~ 5 - 10 grams
5 Advanced Neutron Imaging Beamline at Dhruva Reactor Neutron imaging is a powerful tool for non-destructive testing of materials and finds numerous applications in industry and in material research as well. Unlike X-rays, neutrons are attenuated more by low Z materials and can be especially used to image low Z materials (like hydrogen) inside high Z materials (like lead or iron).
