At MRS Fall 2016, Bruker AXS introduces the D8 ADVANCE PlusTM as the newest member of the D8 ADVANCE family of X-ray diffraction (XRD) solutions. The D8 ADVANCE Plus combines unparalleled ease-of-use with maximum flexibility. It is designed to investigate epitaxial or polycrystalline thin films, large or oddly shaped bulk specimens, and micro- to macro-amounts of powder samples under ambient and non-ambient conditions.

The newly introduced TRIO™ optic is the key component of the new D8 ADVANCE Plus, meeting the specific demands on the instrument resolution of the three most commonly used X-ray diffraction geometries in one single optic:

> Divergent beam for conventional powder diffraction (XRPD)
> High intensity parallel beam for capillary experiments, height insensitive measurements, surface sensitive grazing incidence geometry (GID), coating thickness determination (XRR) and micro-diffraction (uXRD)
> Pure Cu-Ka1 parallel beam for high-resolution diffraction (HRXRD) of epitaxial thin films and low symmetry powder samples

With maximum user convenience in mind, the TRIO optic features motorized switching between the three primary beam geometries and fully software-controlled instrument alignment without manual user intervention via unrivalled SmartCalibTM intelligence.

The D8 ADVANCE Plus is the latest extension to the well-established D8 ADVANCE Multipurpose SolutionsTM family, joining the D8 ADVANCE EcoTM for full-sized goniometer powder diffraction and the D8 ADVANCE TwinTM for maximum performance on polycrystalline powder and layered samples. All three Multipurpose Solutions are optimized for ease-of-use to let the user fully concentrate on results instead of bothering with instrumentation, saving time and increasing accuracy.

For particular applications, such as texture, residual stress, or structure analysis, D8 ADVANCE Dedicated SolutionsTM are the perfect tools, focused on a single analytical task with dedicated components optimized for leading-edge results.

The consistent implementation of DAVINCI DesignTM in every member of the D8 ADVANCE family guarantees unlimited extension of capabilities to match all analytical needs - now and in the future.

The new D8 ADVANCE Plus – maximum flexibility meets unparalleled ease-of-use.
