X-ray Diffraction (XRD)

X-ray Diffraction (XRD)

Manufacturer and model:

Bruker D8 DISCOVER diffractometer.



This is a modular diffractometer with high flexibility in optic and detector set-up. The large radius of the goniometer circle (430 mm) allows a high grade of angle resolution. The LYNXEYE Linear detector is a very fast detector with a high capacity to discriminate the Kα from the fluorescence and the Kβ.



  • Source: Cu or Cr X-ray tube with fix anode.
  • Goniometer radius: 430 mm.
  • Beam type: divergent beam (Bragg-Bentano geometry), linear parallel beam (Goebel mirror), round parallel beam (polycapillary).
  • Eulerian cradle: x, y, z, Psi, Phi motion.
  • Sample holder: flat plate, wafer chuck, zero background sample holder, rotating capillary, in-vacuum sample holder.
  • Detector: point detector, linear detector LYNXEYE XE.
