• D8 Discover with GADDS Multipurpose X-Ray Diffractometer • Bruker AXS’ D8 Discover with GADDS is a multipurpose X-Ray Diffractometer capable of performing a variety of analytical techniques with minimal reconfiguration. X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) is an extremely powerful technique utilizing non-destructive analysis to study a wide range of materials. Research Ops in-house D8 Discover plays a significant role in the analysis and characterization of sputtered thinfilms and synthesized crystalline and semicrystalline materials. XRD is best known for phase identification of crystalline solids.
With the Empyrean, PANalytical has set the standard for a multipurpose diffractometer. In developing the ultimate X-ray platform for the analysis of powders, thin films, nanomaterials and solid objects.
This 2-D detector provides enhanced capabilities for phase ID, phase quantification, texture, stress, small angle x-ray scattering, high-throughput screening, µXRD, and mapping. The instrument can play a significant role in analysis and characterization of many types of materials for research and educational objectives.
A diffractometer is a measuring instrument for analyzing the structure of a material from the scattering pattern produced when a beam of radiation or particles (such as X-rays or neutrons) interacts with it.
