A new diffractometer has been built with which energy-dispersive diffraction patterns can be collected simultaneously at different angles. The first use of this system for dynamic (time-resolved) studies--the hydration of cements under various conditions--is reported. It is found that the optimization available with a three-element detector system enables collection of high-quality patterns over a much wider and more effective range of reciprocal space, and this yields improved and new… CONTINUE READING
