ARTAX, X-ray fluorescence system

About the size of a ball point pen the convex arrangement of glass micro-capillaries focuses tube radiation on a very small spot of 70 µm by multiple reflection of tube radiation. This results in a spot intensity increase by up to 10,000x compared to a collimator. The excellent spatial resolution and high radiation intensity warrant fast measurement with excellent detail.
