To deliver such a small X-ray beam required technical innovation in the design of the X-ray optics, since a smaller source requires greater precision in the d-spacing of the multilayers. The HELIOS MX optics for METALJET transmits the X-rays to the crystal in a uniformly small diameter, greatly exceeding the intensity of traditional X-ray sources.
The METALJET was developed in collaboration with Excillum and enables you to collect data on smaller, more weakly diffracting crystals. The compact source mounts directly on the goniometer. This ensures easy and stable downstream alignment of the source to the goniometer guaranteeing an excellent overall system precision.
The METALJET is designed compact enough to be mounted within the D8 VENTURE cabinet, resulting in a small-footprint diffraction system. By default the instrument is shipped dual-port ready, with a second port ready for another diffraction experiment, e.g. for BioSAXS investigations.
- Highest X-ray intensity due to exclusive patented liquid-metal-jet technology. The liquid target is able to accept a power load an order of magnitude greater than conventional rotating anode X-ray sources.
- Unprecedented brightness resulting from the extremely high power loading and smallest electron focus.
