A laboratory apparatus for surface science and in situ x-ray powder diffraction studies of highly dispersed particles has been constructed. The chamber incorporates standard sample preparation and characterization facilities into a high-flux x-ray diffraction setup, capable of two-circle goniometry with 0.1 nm-1 Q resolution from samples as thin as 1 nm average thickness (1 μg), at an elevated temperature under ultrahigh vacuum, in minutes.
