Surprisingly intuitive

The most intuitive X-ray diffractometer
Aeris is an easy-to-operate and user-friendly benchtop X-ray diffractometer. With its intuitive operation, Aeris makes X-ray diffraction so simple that it is accessible for everyone. The unique touch screen user interface lets you proceed effortlessly through the measurement process of your samples. Your results are always just a few taps away:
1. Place your sample
2. Select measurement program
3. View results

Best-in-class performance

Outperforming expectations
Aeris is your workhorse for rapid and reliable phase identification and Rietveld analysis of powder samples. Thanks to the incorporation of technologies that have already proven their benefits on Malvern Panalytical’s high-end systems, the Research edition of Aeris delivers data quality that was previously only possible with a full-size floor-standing system.

The ideal teaching tool

1D, 2D and non-ambient XRD 

With the optional 2D detector you can teach the fundamentals of powder diffraction in a visual manner.
Phase transitions in your sample can be studied using BTS 500 chambers from Anton Paar.

Fast, flexible and future-proof

Aeris is very flexible and offers possibilities for all sorts of powder diffraction measurements. The instrument can accommodate various types of sample holders in combination with a sample changer and it can be equipped with a BTS 500 non-ambient chamber.

Minimum of infrastructural requirements

No cooling water, no chiller, no compressed air - the only thing you need is a single-phase power socket.

Aeris Research Edition

Data for your research

Whatever project you are working on, the fast acquisition of phase information from your sample in question can be crucial for your research. Just collect X-ray diffraction data with Aeris and subsequently employ the HighScore suite to obtain a wealth of crystallographic information.

The first detector to bring 0D-1D-2D and 3D data to your diffractometer


The PIXcel3D is a unique 2D solid-state hybrid pixel detector. Each pixel is 55 microns x 55 microns and the detector array is 255 x 255 pixels. The detector, now based on Medipix3 technology, brings unrivalled signal to noise with its point spread function of one pixel and multiple energy discrimination levels.

Medipix3 technology brings:
• An increase in range of detection energies from Cr to Cu
• Improved energy resolution
• Increased linearity range
• Improved detection efficiency
• Documented (published) radiation hardness studies
