Side Window Monoblock Sources

from Moxtek

The Side Window X-ray Sources are used for XRD and imaging applications. The small spot size and the short spot-to-object distance (minimum of 7mm) allow the use of high geometrical magnification in imaging applications. Smaller spot size translates directly into a higher spatial  resolution at the detector.

The large x-ray cone angle provides for a large viewing area at the detector.

Side window tubes have approximately 30% higher x-ray flux compared to end window tubes, which helps in applications that rely on counting low numbers of photons, such as X-Ray Diffraction (XRD).

  • Close coupling of source to detector
  • Portable, versatile
  • Easy to integrate
  • Long life
  • Short sampling time
  • Flexible form factor
