PetroLogic Synergy provides a microscopic and crystallographic expertise for the characterization of nano and cripto-cristallines materials, such as glasses, clays, surface alterations, environmental particulates, cements, metal alloys, pigments, porous materials, nanostructured particles.
Analytical methods include:
X-ray Powder Diffraction (XRPD)
Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM)
Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM)
High Resolution Microscopy (HRTEM)
Chemical Spectroscopy (EDXS)
The microscopic and spectroscopic analysis allows to identify size, morphology, preferential orientation, chemical composition, texture and level of particle dispersion involved in several processes.
PetroLogic Synergy offers also the possibility to carry out Electronic Diffraction Tomography (EDT) for the collection of 3D diffraction data from individual nanocrystals, thus ensuring a complete structural characterization of the material.
