Sample Environments

In partnership with its users, XMaS has a long history of developing new sample environments and the ability to apply external stimuli to samples. This allows both in-situ and in-operando studies and facilitates the broad interdisciplinary nature of materials research. Further details on our capabilities can be found through the links below.

We welcome interactions with new and existing users to increase our equipment portfolio. We have some limited funds to develop new systems, so please, get in touch with us if additional systems are required for your research activities.

Many of the sample environments described here are also compatible with our off-line x-ray source and laboratory, increasing the opportunities for material studies.

Applications to use these facilities are welcome.

Sample Goniometers

Room temperature sample holders must fit into the standard Huber range of goniometers (1001Link opens in a new windowLink opens in a new window and 1003Link opens in a new windowLink opens in a new window heads) or should have the same mounting ring.
Please contact us if you require any further information or detailed dimensions prior to any experimental time.
