Every year, we can't wait for spring to start, to see nature come back to life, and to rejuvenate ourselves after a long winter (or pandemic) hibernation. Bruker is springing into action this year by introducing new products.
For analyzing nanomaterials in scanning electron microscopes (SEM), our new, augmented Transmission Kikuchi Diffraction (TKD) solution, OptimusTM 2, builds on the unmatched performance of existing on-axis TKD through the addition of multiple new hardware options, accessories, and software features. The most important change is the release of our OPTIMUS 2 detector head, a result of an ongoing collaboration with DTU Nanolab in Denmark. The OPTIMUS 2's new imaging capability, and its improved design combined with new and innovative software features, will enable new analytical capabilities for in-situ experiments. It brings vastly improved spatial resolution, data quality and data integrity. The user experience improved even further and you will recognize a major boost in productivity for certain applications.

Food such as vegetable oils is subject to extensive regulations regarding exact control and monitoring of elemental ingredients. Especially in food process control, where analyzer ease-of-use and short time-to-result are important, energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) is the analytical method of choice. Our S2 POLAR EDXRF instrument gives cooking oil producers and recyclers reliable elemental results within minutes.
Bruker is proud to introduce the EIGER2 R 250K multi-mode (0D/1D/2D) detector, the newest addition to our detector family for X-ray diffraction (XRD). Developed by Dectris, the technology leader for Hybrid Photon Counting (HPC) detectors, the EIGER2 R 250K boasts a large square sensor, over 250,000 pixels, a doubled dynamic range, and expanded energy and threshold ranges. It's a master of all applications, from powder diffraction to reciprocal space mapping, high-resolution XRD. and X-ray Reflectometry (XRR).
Nickel is used in the production of many steels, non-ferrous alloys, electronics, and batteries. One of the main sources of nickel is nickel laterite, or low-grade Ni ore deposits. With the S2 PUMA Series 2 EDXRF spectrometer, major, minor and trace amounts of critical elements in ores – Ni, Fe, Si, Mg, Al, Ca, Ti, Cr, Mn, Co, Cu, and Zn – can be quantitatively measured quickly and accurately, enabling control of the mining and beneficiation processes.
