HARD X-RAY SPECTROMETERS

The intuitive, yet versatile X-ray spectrographs for the tender and hard X-ray range feature high-resolution XRF measurements in the 1-12keV energy range.

 

A variety of table-top sized geometries can be selected for optimum performance with energy resolution 0.5-1.5eV. Crystal choices include flat-, 1D- and 2D-bent crystals, including diced / segmented.

Monte Carlo simulations can be provided to find the optimal spectrometer configuration and geometry. The calculations consider any type and distribution of source, any configuration and distances, and 0D- 1D- and 2D detectors. The resulting detector image and X-ray spectrum gives a direct estimate of energy resolution and efficiency of the spectrometer.

Customization

 

Our goal is to supply the perfect x-ray spectrometer for your application. We customize every spectrometer to exactly match the desired application.

This includes e.g.:

  • interfacing to experimental chambers

  • adaption to source type / distance

  • integration of customer detectors

  • user-defined slits and filters

Applications

 

  • resonant inelastic X-ray scattering (RIXS), X-ray emission spectroscopy (XES) or X-ray Raman scattering (XRS) studies

  • high intensity laser-matter interaction

  • high-resolution shot-to-shot characterization of undulator and free-electron-laser (FEL) radiation

  • magnetically confined plasmas

  • line characterization in fusion research

Detection

 

Our spectrometers can be operated with all state-of-the-art detection systems:

  • x-ray CCD cameras for highest resolution, large dynamic range and absolute signal strength

  • hybrid photon counting detectors for lowest readout noise

 

We will select and supply the detector that best fits your application
