FORMOSA equipped with large area hybird pixel array (PAD) detector on the top of sample stage to collect Laue diffraction pattern. Combined with precise scanner, users can probing the variation of crystal or thin film to obtained a series of Laue patterns . After obtained the patterns, we can adopt specific software (ex. XMAS, LaueTools, LaueGo...etc) to analyize the patterns and extract useful information of crystal, such as phases, orientations, dislocation density, strain and stress.
