Dr. Gili Cohen-Taguri


Gili Taguri joined Bar-Ilan University in 2011 as the head of the X-ray diffraction laboratory of the Bar-Ilan instituted of Nanotechnology & advanced Materials (BINA), where she gained an extensive experience in measurement methods and analysis techniques for multi-purpose X-ray diffraction designed not only for powders, but for thin films and nano-materials as well. These include Grazing incident XRD (GIXRD), X-ray Reflectivity (XRR), High resolution XRD (HRXRD) and In-plane XRD measurements for Pole Figures texture analysis (preferred orientation), epitaxial growth characterization, thin film quality determination (by rocking curve), phase identification, particle sizing and stain analysis.
