The standard Empyrean platform with the high resolution theta-theta goniometer is a true multi-purpose research diffractometer. Empyrean has the unique ability to measure all sample types - from powders to thin films, from nanomaterials to solid objects - on a single instrument. Thanks to the PreFIX concept for optics and stages, users can vary the application of choice in matter of minutes, without the need to realign the system.
Empyrean Alpha-1 is configured with a unique symmetric Ge monochromator (Johansson type) giving perfect Cu or Co Kα1-only Bragg-Brentano reflection geometry data for structure determination, with unrivaled resolution, excellent peak symmetry, and ultra-low backgrounds. Thanks to the PreFIX concept on the tube housing, users can easily swap between Kα1-only configuration to Kα1,2 in a matter of minutes.
