N8 HORIZON,  Compact Small Angle X-ray Scattering System, Advanced Materials Research

Most Compact SAXS System for Advanced Materials Research

The new N8 HORIZON features an innovative vertical setup, offering the best overall performance with the most compact instrument footprint.

The N8 HORIZON is a powerful tool for both high-end research and for multi-user facilities investigating a variety of nano-materials from solid bulks, to fibers, surfaces or biological samples with SAXS, WAXS, and GISAXS.

Advanced technologies for high data quality with short measurement time

  • IµSTM micro-focus X-ray source boosts X-ray intensity at the sample
  • 2-dimensional VÅNTEC-500TM detector detects even the weakest SAXS signals
  • Revolutionary new SCATEXTM scatter-free pinholes set new benchmarks in terms of X-ray beam quality

The N8 HORIZON addresses many requirements of a multi-user facility. Novel features, such as intelligent screen-keys for intuitive operation, ergonomic sample loading, a small footprint, and an integrated camera for quick and easy sample positioning maximize the ease-of-use and keep the learning curve for operating the instrument short.

Low power consumption, no water cooling and no requirements concerning external infrastructure ensure lowest cost of ownership and smaller carbon footprint.
