Contract Description:

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering's X-ray Diffraction (XRD) Small Research Facility is one of the UK's leading lab-based diffraction facilities. It houses state-of-the-art equipment essential to the characterisation of a wide array of solid state materials, including oxide materials (e.g. electroceramics, cements and refractories), metals and glasses, in both powder and bulk form. The facility is currently moving to a new location and as such has had to retire two diffractometers. With funding from EPSRC we are looking to replace these machines with a benchtop system.
We require a new high throughput benchtop X-ray diffractometer using Cu radiation for our new advanced characterisation facility. Given the laboratory has been very recently built, it is essential that any new machine not require any significant new services, i.e. it must be self-cooling and run via standard mains power.
This diffractometer must be capable of rapid data collection from the wide diversity of materials studied by TUoS researchers - both small bulk pieces (pellets, off-cuts etc) and powdered specimens of ceramics, cements and refractories, metals and glasses.

This is an non-EU open exercise. The ITT can be downloaded by registering and expressing your interest on the University`s e-tendering system you have any questions or comments in relation to this tender they must be submitted via the In-tend system, this can be accessed at tenders must be returned through the same e-tendering system.
