PANalytical Cubix3. Automatic high intensity diffractometer for rapid diagram collection. Theta-theta, Cu-Ka configuration and PIXcel ultrafast detector. It has a 60-position sample exchange table.
Bruker D8 Discover. Multifunction diffractometer with theta-theta configuration, available lengths of Cu and Cr Twist tuve, Ni and V filters, PolyCapTM parallel beam system (1m), collimators of 0.3, 0.5 and 1mm and 1-D LynxEye detector with 3 degrees of opening . It has a laser system for the correct positioning of the samples and an X-Y-Z automatic control platform. The diffractometer is equipped with an Euler cradle that allows the measurement of Stress and Texture.
Rigaku Smartlab. Multifunction diffractometer with optimized settings for XRR and SAXS. It has a Cu source (λ = 1.5418 Å), CBO optical path exchange for measurements with diverging or parallel beam and primary monochromator. Sample holders are available in reflection / transmission configurations for solid or capillary sample. 1-D DteX250 detector.
SuperNova Cu: Single crystal diffractometer with four-circle goniometer, Kappa geometry and microfocus Cu source, equipped with a large Atlas model two-dimensional CCD detector that offers an optimal combination of large active area size (Ø135 mm) and sensitivity of the detector. It is the ideal choice for collecting high-quality data as quickly as possible. Oxford Cryosystems Cryostream 700 Plus (80–500K) low temperature systems are available, and the intake can be programmed automatically at variable temperatures.
SuperNova Mo: Single crystal diffractometer with four-circle goniometer, Kappa geometry, and Mo microfocus source, equipped with a high-sensitivity Eos model two-dimensional CCD detector ideal for single wavelength molybdenum applications. Once again it has Cryosystems Cryostream 700 Plus (80–500K) low temperature systems and allows studies in a high temperature range, being able to program the intake automatically at variable temperatures.
Xcalibur 2: (In process of updating) Single crystal diffractometer with a four-circle goniometer and Kappa geometry, and Mo radiation, equipped with a two-dimensional CCD Shappire 2 detector and an Enhance optic that increases the intensity of X-rays. It has systems Low temperature OD Helijet (10–90K) and Oxford Cryosystems Cryostream 700 (80–400K) and high temperature RKD Hotjet (300-600K) allowing studies in a high temperature range.
