XRD analysis is used to identify and quantify crystalline phases in powder samples (e.g. minerals, ceramics, metals). Since the diffraction signal depends on the geometric arrangement of the atoms in the crystal structure, XRD can differentiate phases with identical chemical composition but different crystal structures, also known as polymorphs.
