Abstract / short description:
The basic infrastructure of the group ("Grundausstattung") features
X-ray scattering equipment for detection of X-rays, but _without_ energy resolution (i.e. non-spectroscopic), which is sufficient for standard diffraction experiments.
For the present project, though, the energy-dispersive detector is needed
for chemical (elemental-specific) identification and localization
of the nanostructures on substrates in X-ray scattering
experiments in various geometries (grazing-incidence and other).

The technical specifications offered by the METEOR E are
* energy dispersive XRD detector
* detector with excellent energy resolution (170 eV at 5.9 keV)
* large active area 150 mm^2
* max. linear count rate 50.000 cps
* large energy range from 1 keV to 300 keV
We are aware of one other family of models on the market in this category,
which is the LYNXEYE Family (Bruker), but the energy resolution of the METEOR E is better (170 eV compared to 380 eV) and the diffractometers to be used by our group for the project are not from Bruker, which makes the integration of the detector in terms of hardware and software difficult or impossible, very much in contrast to the METEOR E, which is compatible with our in-house equipment from SEIFERT XRD.
