With a history of almost 20 years, over 2500 user sites and year-on-year improvements, the X’Pert platform has become the world’s most popular and reliable X-ray powder diffraction instrument. With many innovations adopted from the high-end Empyrean platform, the X’Pert³ Powder is ready for the future.
X’Pert customers have been using their systems for many years (often even 24/7), praising its reliability, robustness and low running cost. With CRISP* technology, the X’Pert³ Powder is taken to a new level of performance and longevity.
* CRISP stands for corrosion resistant incident smart beam path. CRISP is a patented technology and prevents corrosion in the incident beam path caused by X-ray induced ionized air.
Research programs change and materials projects follow new directions. With PreFIX technology, the X’Pert³ system can easily be upgraded as new applications arise or when new optics are available. The different optical configurations show no compromise in resolution or intensity when switching between applications.
Easy to use
The X’Pert³ Powder excels in user-friendliness, with a consistent way of working regardless of the application. A complete data acquisition and analysis software suite help new users to intuitively learn the method and generate good-quality results right from the start.
Widest variety of detectors available
The X’Pert³ Powder can be equipped with either point or line detectors. A very cost-effective detector is our sealed Xe proportional detector, while our scintillation detector is very suited for hard radiation applications such as pair distribution function analysis.
As the world’s first silicon-based position-sensitive line detector, the X’Celerator with 128 channels of 70 µm is the expression of PANalytical’s pioneering work. With the R&D 100 Award winning X’Celerator detector you can measure up to 100 times faster than with a traditional point detector without compromising data quality. Without the need for cooling water, liquid nitrogen flow, counting gas or calibrations it is a very cost-effective solution.
One further step up is the PIXcel1D detector. Developed together with CERN, the PIXcel1D with 256 channels of 55 µm gives you superior resolution, an unmatched dynamic range and a high count rate linearity. Both, the X’Celerator and PIXcel1D detectors come with no dead strips guaranteed.
