Silicon Crystal Sample Holders

Silicon Zero diffraction plates for X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) analysis.

Our products are made of semiconductor grade silicon single crystals. They have been designed to be ideal for Rietveld analysis as they Sil'tronix - zero background holder silicon.JPGpresent practically no interference lines. The XRD pattern obtained, by using our Sil’tronix crystals as background plate, is very “clean”, so that even at very low-intensity, samples’ Bragg reflections can be easily detected.

We produce 2 types of zero background holder (ZBH):

  •    flat sample holders
  •     sample holders with a front-loading shallow cavity where powder can typically be analyzed
