Bruker D8 Discover

​The D8 Discover is a new, state-of-the-art powder diffractometer from Bruker. It allows for automatic sample switching of reflection and transmission samples, and thin films. We can measure using a Cu and Mo source, and the system is equipped with a large area detector to facilitate PDF studies, fast in-situ experiments and texture analysis. The instrument will arrive at CMAL in early 2021.
