The Large Area Micro X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometer

Performance in Spatially Resolved Analysis of Large Objects

The Bruker M6 JETSTREAM is designed for the non-destructive elemental analysis of large samples. The mobility of the instrument allows it to be placed at the site of the object of interest, be it in a gallery, museum or on the shop floor. The performance parameters enable scanning areas of 800 mm x 600 mm with a variable spot size down to 100 µm and speeds of up to 100 mm/s. As the system is capable of measurement "on-the-fly" this results in a pixel dwell time of as short as 1 ms.

Element distribution analysis for large samples with highest performance:

  • The M6 JETSTREAM measurement rig can be tilted, allowing samples to be scanned either horizontally or vertically
  • The spot size of the M6 JETSTREAM can be adapted in five steps to match the structure of the sample and the desired spatial resolution
  • Bruker's advanced XFlash® silicon drift detectors (SDD) are used for the detection of fluorescence radiation. They feature high count rate capability and best energy resolution over a wide count rate range
  • Special safety circuitry provides optimal user protection against exposure to X-rays
  • Ultrasound distance measurement safeguards against collision with the measurement object
  • Regardless of sample size, the M6 JETSTREAM can be easily positioned due to its mobility
  • It can be disassembled into four parts which makes it transportable.
