D2 PHASER - The world´s best benchtop XRD system

Superior data quality meets
unparalleled ease-of-use

The D2 PHASER delivers data quality and collection speed that, up to recently, was thought impossible with a benchtop XRD system.

Due to its compact size, low weight, and ease-of-use design, the system is conveniently mobile, without the need for complicated infrastructure, large, heavy-load work benches, or vendor installation and alignment. A standard power outlet and a few minutes are all that is required to take they system from fully packaged to outstanding results.

The full-featured, and no compromise DIFFRAC.SUITE software package provides the easiest measurement method creation and most powerful and accurate analysis results. All covered with 21CFR Part11 compliance, if required. 

XRD for everyone

XRD - now even better:
The D2 PHASER XE-T Edition

New D2 PHASER XE-T Edition

Now available with the state-of-the-art, energy dispersive LYNXEYE XE-T detector which is capable of delivering data quality not possible with any other benchtop XRD system on the market:

  • Virtual elimination of background from sample fluorescence and Bremsstrahlung scattering
  • Significantly improved peak to background boosting lower limits of detectionand quantification
  • Clean diffraction line profile shapes without metal filter artefacts to improve peak fitting results and accuracy in quantitative phase analysis
