Enriching insights

About us

Innovation requires the ability to measure, visualise, analyse and interpret data to help us gain new insights into the composition, structure, properties and interactions of and between (biological) materials. Our goal is to provide high-end analytical facilities and link unique analytical competencies of DSM Resolve and Maastricht University/UMC+ that promote innovation in the field of materials and life sciences.

NEW - high resolution X-ray Powder Diffractometer

X-ray diffraction (XRD) is an ideal, non-destructive analytical method for examining all types of (semi-)crystalline samples.

The newest equipment features alignment- and tool-free switching between Bragg-Brentano geometry and Göbel mirrors (parallel and focusing), with add-on possibilities for: 
XRD at various temperatures (-190°C to 1600°C) / In-plane graze-incidence X-ray diffraction / X-ray reflectometry

It offers a greatly improved low detec­tion limit. One can obtain information of the sample on e.g.:
Phase identification/ Phase composition/ Crystal structure/ Microstructure
