X-Ray Center (XRC)

Welcome to the X-Ray Center!

The X-Ray Center as a central facility of the TU Wien for material characterization with X-ray diffraction methods was established in 2010. The laboratory rooms were realized in the new chemical building "Lehargasse" at Getreidemarkt, which was renewed within the infrastructure project TU Univercity 2015. For this purpose, the instruments which were already available at institutes of the TU Wien were bundled. Substantially supported by the Uniinfra IV project of the BMWF, opens an external URL in a new window, by funds of the University Infrastructure Program (UIP) of the City of Vienna, opens an external URL in a new window and by funds of TU Wien, the laboratory could be additionally equipped with modern diffractometers and an X-ray fluorescence analyzer. The laboratory and its staff are available to the institutes of TU Wien as a central contact for questions concerning material characterization in following fields:

  •     Qualitative and quantitative phase analysis
  •     X-ray stress and texture analysis
  •     Single crystal structure analysis
  •     Elemental analysis
