- ItemDevelopment of an X-Ray Diffractometer and Its Safety Features(Houghton College, 2017-01-04) Cady, JordanA Braggs-Brentano θ-2θ x ray diffractometer is being constructed at Houghton College to map the microstructure of textured, polycrystalline silver films. A Phillips-Norelco x ray source will be used in conjunction with a 40 kV power supply. The motors for the motion of the θ and 2θ arms, as well as a Vernier Student Radiation Monitor, will all be controlled by a program written in LabVIEW. The entire mechanical system and x ray source are contained in a steel enclosure to ensure the safety of the users.
