To deliver such a small X-ray beam required technical innovation in the design of the X-ray optic with greater precision in the d-spacing of the multilayers. The HELIOS MX optics for METALJET D2 PLUS transmits the X-rays to the crystal in a uniformly small diameter, greatly exceeding the intensity of conventional X-ray sources.
The METALJET D2 PLUS was developed in collaboration with Excillum and is fully integrated into the D8 VENTURE cabinet, resulting in a small-footprint diffraction system. The source mounts directly on the goniometer ensuring easy and stable downstream alignment guaranteeing an excellent overall system precision.
By default, the D8 VENTURE with METALJET D2 PLUS is shipped dual-port ready, with a second port ready for another diffraction experiment, e.g. for BioSAXS investigations.
The level of integration makes the difference between a MetalJet and the Bruker METALJET D2 PLUS.
