3 2θ θ Bragg-Brentano Focusing scheme diffractometers Focusing circles Note that for simplicity, the scheme has been drawn for a setup with moving receiving slit and X-ray source, while the sample container is stationary (Pete). On John, Paul and MINIFLEX diffractomers the same focusing scheme is achieved with stationary X-ray source and the sample holder turning around the centre of the goniometer circle, in sync with the receiving slit.θ2θFocusing circlesGoniometer circleReceiving slitX-ray sourceSample containerPowderIdeal focusing, hence unbiased peak positions and intensities in the diffraction pattern, is achieved ONLY IF the tangent of the focusing circle lies on the surface of the sample and the sample has an infinitely small penetration depth.The School diffractometers are aligned in such a way that when standard sample containers are filled flush with the surface, the tangent requirement is fulfilled.AdvantagesHigh intensityNo need inabsorptioncorrectionDisadvantagesDemanding samplepreparationNot suitable for organicsPress any buttonfor next slide
