Aeris Research Edition - Benchtop X-ray Diffractometer

The Research edition of Aeris is PANalytical’s easy-to-operate and user-friendly benchtop X-ray diffractometer. With Aeris X-ray diffraction (XRD) becomes as easy as making a cup of coffee. It is the most intuitive benchtop XRD instrument with the results of your measurements directly being displayed on the built-in touch screen.

Key features:

  • Intuitive operation
  • Built-in touch screen directly displaying measurement results
  • Virtually unlimited lifetime of the tube
  • Limited infrastructural needs (no chiller or gases needed)
  • Small footprint
  • Low cost of ownership
  • Best-in-class data quality
  • Ideal teaching tool

With its intuitive operation, Aeris makes XRD so simple that it is accessible for everyone. Even inexperienced students can easily get started with any X-ray diffraction analysis. The Research edition of Aeris is your companion for quick scans in the laboratory. It can easily be placed on a desk, does not need much space and only a single-phase power supply. The instrument incorporates proven technologies that have previously only been included in PANalytical’s high-end systems. As a result, data quality and speed of analysis delivered by Aeris have so far only been realized on full-power systems. What’s more, Aeris’ 2-dimensional X-ray diffraction capabilities are ideal for teaching the fundamentals of XRD.


The Research edition of Aeris is your workhorse for rapid phase identification and Rietveld analysis of powder samples. The instrument also accommodates various types of sample holders including non-ambient stages and sample changers. Aeris can be delivered with a 2D Debye-Scherrer kit providing the possibility to perform basic 2D diffraction experiments. This kit is ideal for teaching the fundamentals of X-ray powder diffraction in a visual manner.
