Bigger. Brighter. Bolder. SKYSCAN 2214 CMOS Edition

Two weeks ago, at the 12th International Conference on Industrial Computed Tomography in Fürth (Germany), Bruker announced the new SKYSCAN 2214 CMOS Edition, a multiscale X-ray microscope based on nano-CT (computed tomography) for industrial and academic research. With the CMOS Edition, the highly successful and proven SKYSCAN 2214 platform now incorporates the latest scientific CMOS (sCMOS) detector technology and brings cutting-edge X-ray imaging at highest resolution to the next level.


SKYSCAN 2214 CMOS Edition retains the innovative, modular design which accommodates up to four detectors, allowing users to select at the touch of a button the most appropriate detector for their samples and applications. This unique design now encompasses a 6 Megapixel (Mp) flat panel and three optimized 15/16 Mp sCMOS detectors. They provide an unrivalled field of view for the respective true 3D resolution down to the 500nm range. In addition, the new sCMOS detectors excel at imaging high- and low-density features in the same object thanks to their large dynamic range and ultra-low noise.


The proven ultra-high-resolution nano-CT capability of SKYSCAN 2214 CMOS Edition is a key enabler to state-of-the-art material science, such as the development of low-weight high-strength composite materials. The substantially larger field of view of the sCMOS detectors provides a statistically relevant view at highest resolution in porous materials, such as foam structures. Other contemporary research fields, such as fuel cells and other energy storage devices, particularly benefit from the further improved image quality achieved with the new sCMOS detectors.

My Journey to Southern Africa with Crystallography: Part 2

Dr. Tobias Stuerzer, Head of Applications SC-XRD at Bruker, invites you to the second and last part of his journey to southern Africa. He visited seven different universities, giving training and assistance to several groups using our single-crystal diffractometers. In the February issue of FIRST Newsletter, Dr. Stuerzer described his first three stopovers. There are still four more ahead. Join him again to catch up on his travels.


Rapid Quantification of P, S, Cl, and Ca in Vegetable Oils – Without Sample Preparation

Most vegetable oils used for cooking and in foodstuffs are processed in several industrial steps, including degumming, neutralization, and bleaching.  In these processing steps, special attention is paid to monitoring the phosphorus concentration, since phospholipids have a negative effect both on subsequent steps and on the properties of the oil. Monitoring of sulfur, chlorine, and calcium is of interest as well. The S2 POLAR, our polarized EDXRF spectrometer, measures these elements and then some, in less time, at less cost, and with no sample preparation, compared to ICP-OES.
