Anyone whose day-to-day work involves pushing the limits of analytical research
and science is dependent on instrumentation that can handle changing requirements.
The flexibility of a diffractometer to handle it all: smallest and largest
samples and sample amounts, inhomogeneous or oriented samples of complex shape
geometry and possibly with heavy weight is very often the key to be able to
perform any analysis at all on a sample.
The D8 DISCOVER
with GADDS combines cutting edge x-ray technology of the highest quality
in a truly modular system. The D8
DISCOVER with GADDS can analyze an unrivaled variety of samples within a
wide range of XRD2 and SAXS applications.
The D8 DISCOVER
with GADDS illuminates samples with a tuned monochromatic and parallel x-ray
beam. The spatially diffracted x-rays are then measured and evaluated using
software from Bruker’s GADDS suite.
Key hardware components of the D8
DISCOVER with GADDS are the patented automated Laser-Video alignment system
and the patented HI-STAR area detector:
Both components enable simple precision alignment of sample features for instant
analysis in snap-shot or movie mode. Peak to back-ground of the data are close
to the theoretical limits because of the unique sensitivity of the HI-STAR detector.
Many high-end accessories are available to accommodate applications ranging
from Phase Identification, Phase quantification, Texture, Stress, Single Crystal
Diffraction, Small Angle X-ray Scattering, High Throughput Screening, MicroDiffraction,
Mapping, Reciprocal Space Mapping, Non Ambient Characterization, High resolution
X-ray Diffraction, Reflectometry, Gracing Incidence Diffraction, Indexing and
