D8 2nd Generation

D8 Solutions - Second Generation

The second generation of the D8 QUEST and D8 VENTURE is designed for single crystal X-ray diffraction.
A number of ground-breaking innovations is now available in both systems:

PHOTON II Detector

The new PHOTON II CPAD detector harnesses advanced Charge Integrating Pixel Array Detector (CPAD) technology, originally developed for X-ray Free Electron Lasers (XFELs) and features:

  • The largest monolithic active area of any pixel array
  • No gaps due to the use of a single wafer-scale silicon sensor
  • Single-photon sensitivity
  • No charge sharing effects, zero counting losses
  • Excellent sensitivity over a wide energy range (Cu Kα to In Kα radiation)
  • Three year warranty

IµS 3.0 Source

The Incoatec Microfocus Source, the IµS 3.0 is the first ever microfocus source specifically designed and optimized for X-ray diffraction.

By completely redesigning the X-ray source the IµS 3.0 almost doubles the X-ray intensity compared to conventional microfocus sources.

  • For Cu, Mo and Ag
  • Optimized state-of-the-art X-ray multilayer optics
  • Up to twice the intensity of conventional microfocus sources
  • Very long lifetime without maintenance
  • Air-cooled for highest beam stability
  • Three year warranty

APEX3 Software

The advanced technology is complemented by the completely new APEX3 software package, which greatly enhances the crystallographers’ productivity.

  • New, highly intuitive user interface
  • New analysis engines for twinned and intergrown samples
  • Advanced structure solution, and refinement routines
  • Integration routines for powder data
