Bruker D8 Advance (from 2005) with CuKα radiation. Våntec-1™  SuperSpeed detector.

This diffractometer has a number of hardware configurations, but is primarily dedicated to non ambient data collection using a selection of low temperature, high temperature and high pressure sample stages covering a temperature range of -160-1400°C, under inert and reactive atmospheres up to 20 bar pressure.

The Våntec-1™ detector offers the ability to collect data in a fixed position mode, taking data “snapshots” of up to 12 degrees 2θ. This makes it an ideal instrument for non-ambient diffraction work, with the capability to rapidly collect large amounts of data for the investigation of structure, reactions and kinetics at high temperature.
