The Design and Construction of the Houghton X-ray Diffractometer
A 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 40kV power supply. The motors for the motion of the θ and 2θ arms, as well as a Vernier Student Radiation Monitor and other safety monitors, will all be controlled by a program written in LabVIEW.
