XRD for Materials Research
The D8 DISCOVER is an easy-to-use X-ray diffraction system for all materials research analytical techniques, including:
- High resolution diffraction
- In-plane grazing incidence diffraction (IP-GID)
- Small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS)
- Residual stress and texture studies
Switch easily between tasks, with real-time component detection, plug-and-play functionality and fully integrated 2-dimensional XRD2 capabilities.
2D Detector: VÅNTEC-500
Size is the most important feature of a 2D detector. A large detector window speeds up data collection and enables you to access information not possible with 0D, 1D or smaller 2D detectors. Bruker’s VÅNTEC-500 detector has a large 140mm diameter window, covering up to approximately 80° (2θ) and a large γ-range.
Diffraction Geometry Switching
Factory-aligned SNAP-LOCK X-ray optics enable true ‘plug-and-play’ functionality. Switch diffraction geometries automatically, with no need for tools and minimal user intervention.
X-ray optics modules, detectors and accessories are automatically and instantly recognised when mounted on the instrument. Relevant parameters and loaded and analytical capabilities are recognised. In addition, the software detects and alerts you of any possible component conflicts.
