Poly Crystallography

Poly Crystallography, Inc. provides crystallographic consulting and problem-solving services, mainly using powder diffraction techniques. X-ray powder diffraction is one of the most versatile analytical techniques, able to provide not only qualitative and quantitative phase analysis, but also details of atomic, molecular, and crystalline structure as well as information on microstructural properties such as crystallite size, strain, and texture. Limited information can be obtained on amorphous solids and liquids.

The President and Principal Scientist of Poly Crystallography, Inc., Dr. James A. Kaduk (retired from Amoco/BP/Innovene/Ineos), is well-known in the field of powder diffraction. He teaches short courses in powder diffraction and crystallography worldwide, and serves on several editorial boards and advisory committees.
