The Ultima IV represents the state-of-the-art in multipurpose X-ray diffraction (XRD) systems. Incorporating Rigaku's patented cross beam optics (CBO) technology for permanently mounted, permanently aligned and user-selectable parallel and focusing geometries, the Ultima IV X-ray diffractometer can perform many different measurements fast. The Ultima IV is fast and flexible for a variety of applications including powder diffraction, thin film diffraction and in-plane scattering.  

This XRd is equipped with standard stage suitable for powder and bulk samples, Auto-Sample-Exchanger (ASC-10) for powder samples,  and multi-purpose stage for Thin Film samples. The detector is scintillation counter with monochromator.
