Rigaku SmartLab XRD System

The new industry standard for multipurpose X -ray diffractometers

A highly versatile automated X -ray diff raction (XRD) system, the newest SmartLab diff ractometer off ers continued refinement of the ease-of-use features that enabled the original SmartLab diff ractometer to receive the coveted R&D 100 Award, such as automatic alignment, component recognition, Cross Beam Optics and a 2D detector. SmartLab began as the flagship model from Rigaku in 2006 and new leading-edge, advanced technologies have been continuously introduced over the years. This newest addition to the SmartLab series of high-resolution X-ray diff raction analyzers is engineered to provide the best performance in all X -ray diff raction or scattering applications by offering not only breakthrough hardware, but also advanced “User Guidance” functionality within the new SmartLab Studio II software.
