Bruker AXS

The Bruker D8 DISCOVER is an easy-to-use X-ray diffraction system for all materials research analytical techniques, including:

  • – Reflectometry
  • – High resolution diffraction
  • – In-plane grazing incidence diffraction (IP-GID)
  • – Small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS)
  • – Residual stress and texture studies

Switch easily between tasks, with real-time component detection, plug-and-play functionality and fully integrated 2-dimensional XRD2 capabilities.


Easy switching

Between different configurations and geometries.

Plug and play functionality

Large detector window

Faster analysis and more data.


2D Detector: VÅNTEC-500

Size is the most important feature of a 2D detector. A large detector window speeds up data collection and enables you to access  information not possible with 0D, 1D or smaller 2D detectors. Bruker’s VÅNTEC-500 detector has a large 140mm diameter window, covering up to approximately 80° (2θ) and a large γ-range.

HPC X-Ray Detectors

The D8 DISCOVER is compatible with Bruker’s EIGER2 R series of HPC (Hybrid Photon Counting) X-ray detectors:

Diffraction Geometry Switching

Factory-aligned SNAP-LOCK X-ray optics enable true ‘plug-and-play’ functionality. Switch diffraction geometries automatically, with no need for tools and minimal user intervention.

X-ray optics modules, detectors and accessories are automatically and instantly recognised when mounted on the instrument. Relevant parameters and loaded and analytical capabilities are recognised. In addition, the software detects and alerts you of any possible component conflicts.
