A new class of X-ray Diffractometers

Bruker has created innovative analytical instruments to support the scientific community as well as users in industry. Our analytical solutions stand for cutting-edge technology and the highest performance. While we are providing top technology for scientists worldwide, over the past decades, we have more and more focused on making the latest analytical methods also accessible to a broader group of users.

At the forefront of this endeavor for accessibility are our benchtop instruments. Although they come with a smaller form factor than our landmark full-size systems, they share with them the same analytical instrument DNA, including the focus on data quality, robust hardware design, and reliable results.

The D6 PHASER is a groundbreaking benchtop XRD platform that combines operability and flexibility. Unlike traditional benchtop instruments, it offers advanced analytical methods beyond powder diffraction. With its wide range of applications, the D6 PHASER opens up new markets and user communities for XRD.


The combination of the highest X-ray source-power on the market, small goniometer radius, the proven LYNXEYE detector family, and tailor-made beam optics outperform many floor-standing systems.

  • Up to 1.2 kW with internal cooling
  • Time-tested goniometer 
  • Energy Discrimination with LYNXEYE XE-T detector
  • Optional motorized beam optics


One of the hallmark features of the D6 PHASER is the ability to adapt the system to a multitude of measurement types beyond basic powder diffraction, making it a truly universal stage for every experiment.

  • Reflection and transmission
  • Non-ambient diffraction
  • GID, XRR, Stress, Texture


No training is required. The users are guided through analytical methods in an intuitive way based on our easy-to-use software and extensive knowledge of XRD analytical methods, while assisted by affordable, automated accessories.

  • Dynamic Beam Optimization 
  • Touch panel operation
  • Stage and optics exchange
