D8 DISCOVER Plus

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

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:

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

Best Alignment - Guaranteed

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.


Exponentially Compound Gains

The ATLAS and TXS-HE are designed to be fully compatible with the full range of D8 components including optics, stages, detectors and accessories.

  • Multi-beampath optics, like TWIN and TRIO, ensure the optimal beam condition for every experiment
  • Specimen mounting stages including multi position sample changers, centric Eulerian cradles, UMC stages for heavy weight loads
  • Multi-mode detectors like the LYNXEYE XE-T and EIGER2 R 500K perfectly support all XRD applications
