Providence, RI--If you happen to be looking for an analysis of the crystalline structure of your single-crystal optical material, you might want to check with Meller Optics. The company does x-ray-diffraction analysis to find the structural orientation of crystalline samples supplied by customers, and can also correct a plane on the sample if necessary.
Meller's x-ray single-crystal diffraction analysis uses x-ray-diffraction goniometry to measure a specific sample plane as requested by the customer, and provides a flat reference to a 2 to 3 arc-minute accuracy. The measurement can be dome for samples from 0.25 in. square and made of materials such as sapphire, single-crystal quartz, silicon, magnesium fluoride (MgF2), calcium fluoride (CaF2), barium fluoride (BaF2), and spinel. As well as correcting a plane, Meller can provide a reference flat, if desired. Quotations are provided upon request.
