Bruker D8 Advance X-Ray Diffraction System

Thanks to Professor Christian Brückner and the UConn chemistry department, MSE has recently acquired a like-new Bruker D8 Advance X-Ray Diffraction System. Located in room 303 of the Engineering II building, the equipment will further enhance the capabilities of MSE undergraduate labs. Lab manager Adam Wentworth states, “The system will serve to educate students about modern diffraction systems in senior-level Materials Characterization (MSE 4003) as well as residual stress analysis and material identification in our capstone design project courses (MSE 4901W and 4902W).”
