STRESS-SPEC: Materials science diffractometer

Michael Hofmann, Weimin Gan, Joana Rebelo-Kornmeier

Abstract


In response to the development of new materials and the application of materials and components in new technologies the direct measurement, calculation and evaluation of textures and residual stresses has gained worldwide significance in recent years. STRESS-SPEC, the materials science diffractometer, which is jointly operated by the Technische Universität München, the Institute of Materials Science and Engineering, Technische Universität Clausthal and by GEMS, Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht, is located at the thermal beam port SR-3 of the FRM II and can easily be configured either for texture analysis or strain measurements.
