M4 TORNADO, 2D µ-XRF, Ultimate Speed and Accuracy
SpotSize

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