Powder Characterization & Analysis

Our full powder characterization services include comprehensive physical and structural analysis of powders. Along with powder characterization, we have the capability to conduct quantitative and qualitative phase analysis of solids. These analyses include lattice parameter measurements, structural refinement, crystallite size, identification of crystalline phase and quantity.
