Supporting laboratories

Available additional services at the X-ray laboratory and the Kumpula campus

At the Department of Physics X-ray Laboratory we can offer as auxiliary services to the Center for X-ray Spectroscopy users:

  • Laue camera for single-crystal quality check and orienting
  • X-ray microtomography laboratory (highly useful for checking electrochemical cells for example)
  • 4-circle X-ray diffractrometer
  • Wide-angle x-ray scattering equipment with 2D area detector

Other services available at the Campus:

Helsinki Geoscience Labor­at­or­ies (HELLABS)  hosts wavelength-dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometer, X-ray diffraction, electron microprobe, and Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy

Helsinki Accelerator Laboratory hosts x-ray photoemission spectroscopy, atomic mass spectrometry, positron annihilation spectroscopy and ion beam analysis methods (RBS, ERDA, NRA, PIXE, ...)

Laboratory for Inorganic Chemistry hosts electron microscopes, for example a Hitachi S-4800 field emission scanning electron microscope with an Oxford INCA 350 EDS (energy-dispersive x-ray spectrometer for elemental analysis).
