Vista Scan - Duerr

Vista Scan - imaging plate scanner
(originally designed for dentists)

theoretical resolution of the scanner: 40 line pairs/mm
with current imaging plates: 15 line pairs/mm

96.3% efficiency


Course grains.
Small imaging plate placed at the receiving
slit in conventional Bragg-Brentano diffractometer

Strongly textured and stressed thin films

Small imaging plate placed in the diffracted beam in parallel beam geometry (polycapillary and Eulerian cradle). Weak part of the ring - Fe substrate, inclined spot - TiB2 film with strong 000l texture and stress (inclination)

Integration of a part of the ring
