MEREDIT - Neutron Powder Diffractometer

meredit-logo-smallThe neutron powder diffractometer MEREDIT (MEdium REsolution neutron powder DIffracTometer) was made operational for scientists at the end of the year 2008. It is placed on the horizontal channel number 6 in the reactor hall of LWR15 (light water reactor) in Řež near Prague.

This instrument is mainly dedicated to the study of the crystalline and/or magnetic structure of the powder or polycrystalline samples. Due to the several sample environments including vacuum and light furnace, close cycle cryostat, Euler goniometer, deformation rig, and automatic sample exchanger is this instrument an universal tool for researchers whose want to use advatages of neutron powder diffraction.
