Rigaku introduces new multipurpose X-ray diffraction system with built-in intelligent guidance to optimize hardware configuration and settings for specific application measurements
TOKYO, April 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Rigaku Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the Rigaku SmartLab SE system, a highly versatile multipurpose X-ray diffractometer
Award-winning guidance software recognizes installed components and seamlessly integrates them into data collection and data analysis methods. The cross beam optics module offers permanently mounted, permanently aligned and user selectable optical geometries for various diffraction experiments. As an example, one can choose a Bragg-Brentano and parallel beam combination for measurements of both powders and thin films without the need for instrument reconfiguration. One could also choose a Bragg-Brentano and focusing transmission combination to measure organic materials in both transmission and reflection modes.
The SmartLab SE system further extends application capability with the next-generation HyPix™-400 2D detector. This hybrid pixel array detector offers the highest resolution and count rates available today. It is manufactured and fully integrated into the SmartLab SE system by Rigaku and, as such, offers the superior ease of use pioneered by Rigaku in the original SmartLab diffractometer. The SmartLab SE system configured with a HyPix-400 detector operates in 0D, 1D, and 2D modes without the need to exchange the detector.
