X-ray Sources

X-ray source technology is a key competence of Bruker AXS.

Various fully integrated, state-of-the-art X-ray sources are available to generate the X-rays.

  • The industry-grade metal-ceramic sealed tube for line or spot focus 
  • The patented TWIST-TUBE for fast and easy switching between line and spot focus
  • The microfocus X-ray (IµS) source boosts the intensity on small spots while consuming only very little power
  • The TURBO X-RAY SOURCE (TXS) rotating anode provides highest intensities for line, spot and micro focus applications
  • The revolutionary METALJET, based on liquid metal jet technology, provides unmatched X-ray source brilliance

 

These X-ray sources are combined with dedicated X-ray optics to efficiently capture the X-rays and turn them into an X-ray beam optimized for your application.
