D8 DISCOVER Plus — High-Performance X-Ray Diffraction from Bruker

Bruker AXS has introduced the latest ATLAS™ goniometer for the D8 DISCOVER Plus X-ray diffraction solution. The goniometer offers an unparalleled angular and beam-positioning precision.

Applications that are specifically demanding can benefit from more reliable and accurate data quality in terms of intensity, shape, and peak position. An optional non-coplanar detector arm enables highly precise in-plane grazing incidence diffraction (IPGID) analyses of sample characteristics parallel to the surface and surface-sensitive investigations of ultrathin films.

The ATLAS™ goniometer includes ingenious mechanics which, when integrated with Bruker’s novel Automatic Torque Control (ATC), increase the movement accuracy of heavier components and, at the same time, reduce mechanical wear.

Key Benefits of the D8 DISCOVER Plus

The ATLAS™ Goniometer

  • Dedicated spatial precision offers maximum stability in beam positioning
  • Industry-leading angular precision: ±0.007° 2θ is ensured across the whole angular range established on NIST SRM 1976
  • D8 range of components, such as sample stage, positioning cameras, optics, and non-ambient and detector technologies, can be easily integrated

Non-Coplanar Detector Arm

  • Patented ATC and direct angular encoder for maximum precision
  • Third goniometer axis for analyzing ultrathin layers as well as in-plane sample characteristics
  • Highly accurate mounting track for flexible configuration of the beam path
  • Automated distance detection to calibrate the detector in real time

Versatile Sample Handling

Bruker’s D8 DISCOVER Plus can be fitted with various sample stages to match specific application needs, spanning from stress/texture and wafer mapping to regular powder diffraction and screening of crystallization well plates. All sample stages are equipped with a bayonet mount that enables both alignment-free and rapid exchange.
