XRD engineered for performance
This new X-ray diffraction system features the PhotonMax high-flux 9 kW rotating anode X-ray source coupled with a HyPix-3000 high-energy-resolution 2D multidimensional semiconductor detector that supports 0D, 1D and 2D measurement modes, allowing all applications to be handled with a single detector, eliminating the inconvenience of preparing and switching individual detectors for different applications. The HyPix-3000 detector can be used to obtain 2D powder diffraction patterns, which can be processed to deliver superior qualitative analysis by using all the 2D pattern information.
The system incorporates a high-resolution θ/θ closed loop goniometer drive system with an available in-plane diffraction arm. The system’s new Cross-Beam-Optics (CBO) family feature fully automated switchable reflection and transmission optics (CBO-Auto).
XRD designed for usability
Coupling a computer controlled alignment system with a fully automated optical system, and the User Guidance functionality within the SmartLab Studio II software, makes it easy to switch between hardware modes, ensuring that your hardware complexity is never holding back your research.
XRD that is functionality redefined
Whether you are working with thin films, nanomaterials, powders, or liquids the SmartLab will give you the XRD functionality to make the measurements you want to make when you want to make them. The equipment accepts powder, liquid, films, and even textile samples and allows mapping measurements within suitable samples. Operando (a.k.a., real time in-situ) measurements can be performed with the new Rigaku SmartLab Studio II software suite, which is an integrated software platform incorporating all functions from measurement to analysis. The system also features robust security and validation protocols to ensure that any technology component – software or hardware – fulfills its purpose within regulatory guidelines, including 21 CFR Part 11, establishing the US EDA regulations governing electronic records and electronic signatures (ER/ES).
