HYDRA: XRF - XRD COMBINED SPECTROMETER

An integrated dual-technique tool

Hydra is an innovative portable spectrometer designed to perform in-situ, fast and non-destructive combined elemental and chemical structural analyses, by the complementary EDXRF and XRD techniques. In particular, the instrument has been developed for cultural heritage.

The output information delivered by the instrument includes both XRF spectrum and XRD 2D pattern from exactly the same analysis point. The user has to position the instrument once, and the two spectra will come along.

Hydra by XGLab

The XRF system is equipped with a large area fast Silicon Drift Detector (SDD) with ultimate performances. The core of the XRD system is an advance motorized 2D hybrid pixel detector with direct X-Ray detection that guarantees very fast acquisition and high performances. The exciting source is an high efficiency and micro Focus X-Ray tube coupled with a polycapillary optics coupled with several types of filters and slits to optimize the X-Ray beam profile and aperture.

XRF and XRD components are highly integrated into the detection head and the perfect coincidence of the analysis area and geometry setup are always under the control of the operator thanks to several other monitoring systems (pointing lasers, microscope camera, external camera, illumination on analysis region with dimming adjustment). The system works in a complete contact-less mode with an optimal focus distance of about 2cm from the sample.

The head can be easily mounted on a portable tripod and equipped with manual XYZ and tilting translators stage for fine sample alignment.

The instrument is provided with advanced software for complete instrument control, spectra and data visualization, elaboration and finally easy report creation.
