Amazing results! Love to use.
"I am glad to have data from this set up as it is always easy to use and gives outstanding results. Data is reproducible from multiple runs on the same sample. Thank you Bruker!"Review date:

I can live without this instrument
"Good equipment, reliable data but company is overprotective with respect to software for analysis and hold a very bad policy with respect to new licences. After 10 years does not provide any support for the software. The company sells a new licence for the use of the software at a ridiculous price.
At the end you are stuck with an instrument without being able to access the data and being able to analyze the data if you do not buy the new licence for the software."Review date:

D8 ADVANCE – The Industry Leader
Although the D8 ADVANCE is the top-selling x-ray diffractometer for powder XRD applications, its capabilities reach far into other realms of x-ray diffraction. Facilitating more than 10,000 possible combinations of different x-ray sources, x-ray optics, sample stages, and x-ray detectors, the optimal configuration can always be reached. In addition, the modular design of the D8 ADVANCE enables an easy and straightforward change of configuration. The analytical capabilities can be expanded or simplified. A simple system can be purchased now and upgraded later, allowing for a perfectly cost-efficient x-ray diffraction system.
The push-plug optics of the D8 ADVANCE enables a quick switch between the para-focusing Bragg-Brentano geometry to parallel beam geometry without realignment of the system. For the “cut above” standard powder diffraction, the D8 ADVANCE with Vario1 Johansson focusing monochromator features high-flux K-alpha-1 radiation for reflection as well as for foil or capillary transmission experiments.
D8 ADVANCE - Sample stage concept
The sample stage concept of the D8 ADVANCE allows for many different sample environments. These range from 10 K Helium closed-cycle cryostats up to non-ambient sample conditions with high temperature and humidity. For ambient conditions, the flip-stick sample stage and the auto changer provide the capability of measuring a batch of up to 90 samples in transmission as well as in reflection geometry.
Detector technology is an important core competence of Bruker AXS. This means that the D8 ADVANCE can be equipped with the full range of point and linear detectors. According to the analytical requirements, the user can choose between different types of dynamic scintillation counter, energy dispersive Sol-X, or the Super Speed VÅNTEC-1.
No matter how the individual diffraction solution is configured, any D8 ADVANCE has the ability to perform a full range of applications, from qualitative and quantitative phase identification, under ambient or non ambient conditions, to crystal structure solution from powder samples, crystallite size determination, micro strain analysis, residual stress analysis, and preferred orientation.
