D8 DISCOVER Plus, X-ray diffraction

D8 DISCOVER Plus

ATLASTM Goniometer

In X-ray diffraction the base for an accurate sample analysis is the goniometer and the precise orientation of the mounted components particularly while measuring. The ATLAS goniometer exactly meets these requirements by design and sets the benchmark for angular and spatial accuracy:

  • Robust and maintenance-free goniometer
  • High-precision stepper motors with high resolution optical encoders
  • Precise and software monitored interfaces for mounting components

Guaranteed Alignment

Best alignment

The D8 DISCOVER Plus equipped with the ATLAS goniometer comes with a Bruker AXS generic alignment guarantee: the angular deviation ∆2Theta of measured and certified peak positions 2Theta is ≤0.007°. This is verified by measuring the NIST certified standard SRM1976 with each individual instrument.


In-Plane Diffraction

The D8 DISCOVER Plus can be equipped with the Non-Coplanar Arm to perform In-Plane diffraction with unrivalled performance.

  • Unmatched accuracy with direct angular encoder and patented Automatic Torque Control (ATC)
  • Dedicated beam path components increase the measured intensities to obtain signals even from ultra thin polycrystalline films.
  • Seamless integration in DIFFRAC.SUITE software and in DIFFRAC.DAVINCE for maximized efficiency.

High Efficiency Turbo X-ray Source

TXS-HE Source

Whether the key measure of an analytical X-ray tool is data quality, defined as signal-to-noise or signal-to-background, or sample throughput, one constant is that a more of signal is always an advantage.

The High Efficiency Turbo X-ray Source (TXS-HE) has been designed to boost signal while minimizing maintenance associated with rotating anode technology.

  • Up to 5 times the intensity of an industrial sealed tube
  • Line focus setup with unsurpassed focal spot brightness
  • Ideal coupling with optics for maximum intensity
  • Reduced beam path length to minimize air scatter

High Brilliance in XRD

  • MONTELPlus optics deliver a Millimeter sized beam with high brilliance, low divergence and ultra-low background.
  • SNAP-LOCK optics to further adapt the beam to the sample.
  • Green design with low power consumption, no water consumption and extended life components
  • Unrivaled resolution and intensity for In-Plane-Diffraction.
