DCC X-Beam for Monochromatic Excitation

DCC X-Beam™ is an X-ray excitation system that generates a focused, monochromatic X-ray beam by integrating a source an innovative doubly-curved crystal (DCC) optic. This turn-key solution integrates a high-quality X-ray beam using a low-power source delivering breakthrough performance in the most demanding analytical instruments.

Its compact size and beam intensity stability enables seamless retrofitting with customer instruments.

  • Extremely high flux density
  • Enhanced spatial resolution for focusing X-ray beams
  • Integrated air-cooled system
  • Integrated shutter module meets PTB regulations
  • PCS50 controller available for end-users (optional feature)
