Bruker AXS, Billerica, Mass., introduces the D8 Discover Plus X-ray diffraction system, which combines the high power of its TXS-HE high-efficiency Turbo X-ray source, with the reliability and accuracy of its high-endurance Atlas goniometer.

"The instrument is designed to deliver top-class results for structure analysis of all kinds of materials, from powders in the pharmaceutical industry to crystalline structures in semiconductor devices, and is a further step to strengthen Bruker's position as the provider of the most powerful and user-friendly XRD solutions on the market," says Dr. Lutz Bruegemann, General Manager XRD, Vice President, Bruker AXS

The TXS-HE is optimized to deliver an extremely high-intensity X-ray beam without compromising flexibility, to meet the most demanding analytical needs in today's research, development, and process control. The TXS-HE significantly reduces data collection time compared to conventional X-ray sources, and delivers better data quality, giving new insights into structural properties of materials. Further, the additional speed of the TXS-HE enables the studies of dynamic processes, including time-dependent phase transitions and kinetics in materials better than ever before.

The advanced design of the new Atlas goniometer delivers an even higher level of angular positioning accuracy, thus increasing the reliability of measured data for all applications. It is extremely robust, ensuring that this level of performance is maintained for all configurations, from classic powder diffraction to epitaxial thin-film characterization. As a result, the D8 Discover Plus with Atlas goniometer even tops Bruker's unique total system alignment guarantee, setting the new standard for XRD laboratory systems.

By combining the high X-ray flux of the TXS-HE, the outstanding accuracy of the Atlas goniometer, and the large detection area and dynamic range of the new Eiger2 R 500K multi-mode Hybrid Photon Counting detector, the D8 DiscoverPlus offers unmatched capabilities for the analytical tasks in materials research and analysis.

The instrument is designed to deliver top-class results for structure analysis of all kinds of materials, from powders in the pharmaceutical industry to crystalline structures in semiconductor devices, and is a further step to strengthen Bruker's position as the provider of the most powerful and user-friendly XRD solutions on the market," says Dr. Lutz Bruegemann, General Manager XRD, Vice President, Bruker AXS
