Microfocus Source for Macromolecular Crystallography

IμS DIAMOND Microfocus Source

The extreme hardness of diamond has allowed crystallographers to study materials at pressures greater than at the core of the Earth. Now, the extremely high heat conductivity of diamond gives crystallographers a new X-ray source without equal: the IμS DIAMOND. Diamond conducts heat five times more efficiently than any other known material, making it perfect to cool the intense heat loads in a modern microfocus source.

The IμS DIAMOND sets new standards for brightness, stability, reliability and ease of use. Small crystals in particular benefit from the new technology.

The IμS DIAMOND is part of the new D8 VENTURE BIOTOOLS and delivers higher average peak flux densities than rotating anode generators.

In contrast to rotating anode generators the IμS DIAMOND is fully air-cooled, has extraordinarily long up-times and does not require any routine maintenance.
