At DIAD, our users will be able of acquiring data using the following techniques:
DIAD combines these techniques into complex acquisition modes, providing concurrent imaging and diffraction data collection for in situ or operando experiments
Point and shoot© allows our users to perform radiography informed diffraction measurements. It is designed for experiments where processes or events inside a specimen is unpredictable or indeterministic. Live radiography allows Users to observe and identify an area of interest and steer the diffraction beam to this location for diffraction data collection.
Interlaced data collection is designed to combine our imaging and diffraction techniques in sequence. This allows our Users to not only visualise and quantify the internal structure/morphology for their specimen but also the chemical composition/strain at a region of interest.
Automated data collection is designed for in situ/operando experiments where processes or events inside a specimen is deterministic or predictable. This mode allows our Users to predefine data collection trigger points along the planned test path of the specimen. The system then automatically collects imaging/diffraction data when the conditions of a trigger is fulfilled.
