Graphite Monochromators

Graphite Monochromators

 

Momentive graphite monochromators are highly oriented forms of high purity pyrolytic graphite (PG) which diffract x-rays and neutrons with greater efficiency than any other material.  In x-ray analysis, intensity is increased 3 to 5 times over that obtained with conventionally used crystals.  A singly-bent focusing monochromator using graphite yields 3 times the intensity of lithium fluoride at equivalent resolution.  Momentive originally introduced, and still offers, graphite monochromotors with the lowest mosaic spread available.

   3.5 - 4.5 x 10-5 ohm-cm
   0.15 - 0.25 ohm-cm

Mosaic spread is half maximum height peak width of the Cu-K a rocking curve

 

  

HOPG plates are produced as flat, singly-bent and doubly-bent shapes.  The monochromators are classified according to mosaic spread.
