The primary feature which distinguishes the Bruker D8 Discover from more traditional XRD tools is two-dimensional X-ray detection. A 2D image contains far more information than a 1D profile, and this advantage is fully utilized with the advanced 2D image processing and 2D diffraction pattern manipulation. Thus the 2D diffraction (XRD2) is a new technique in the field of XRD. The Bruker’s acronym GADDS stands for General Area Detector Diffraction Systems. The D8 Discover is also supplied with an optical laser-video camera system for easy sample alignment, and a high power rotating anode (Cu).
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. Phase Identification, Phase Quantification, Texture, Stress, High Throughput Screening, MicroDiffraction, Mapping and more can be done faster and more easily on this system.
