Non-ambient XRD: How we went from market revolutionary to market leader

Mar 07 2024

Pioneer in non-ambient X-Ray diffraction

When we at Anton Paar introduced the HTK 10 Hight-Temperature Chamber back in 1964, we changed the face of non-ambient X-ray diffraction. The HTK 10 Hight-Temperature Chamber was capable of heating samples up to 1,600°C in order to study their structural changes by X-ray diffraction during heating.

Prior to this, non-ambient X-ray diffraction of various materials was mainly done with homemade equipment due to there being no real commercial heating chamber available on the market. This changed when we entered the market 60 years ago. Since then, our knowledge and experience in X-ray diffraction, especially under non-ambient conditions, has accumulated and grown. Such expertise has shaped our current broad portfolio of non-ambient X-ray diffraction attachments for studies between -190°C and +2,300°C under different atmospheres (dry and humid) and pressures, as well as mechanical or electrical loads. Along with this complete portfolio, we also create customised solutions for our customers; something that sets us apart as the market leader in non-ambient XRD.

60th anniversary celebration

In 2024, we will proudly celebrate our first milestone in the field of X-ray diffraction. As part of the anniversary celebrations, we’re organising the XRD excites: Non-Ambient XRD & Beyond Symposium, a scientific meeting with a strong focus on non-ambient X-ray diffraction in Graz, Austria, from 9 to 11 July 2024. In addition, our Anton Paar subsidiaries will be organising regional non-ambient X-ray diffraction workshops. Throughout the anniversary year, we have lots of exciting things planned.
