Author(s) from Durham


A new desk-side double-axis X-ray diffractometer capable of rapid, automatic measurement of lattice mismatch between epitaxial thin films and substrate in a two dimensional grid 150 mm square has been built. The design principles behind the five independent axis systems, specimen loading, and the fail-to-safety X-ray shutter are elucidated, and examples of typical data from substrate material and thin epitaxial films of III-V compounds are presented.
