Soft X-Ray Source
Harness Soft X-Ray Technology in Your Lab
Other than in synchrotron facilities, soft x-rays (SXR) are difficult to produce. Now, soft x-rays are readily available for any research laboratory at flux levels suitable for imaging and microprobing.
The Energetiq EQ-10R- SXR is a compact, easy-to-use, reliable and cost-effective SXR light source system, based on Energetiq’s unique Electrodeless Z-Pinch™ technology using Nitrogen gas.
The EQ-10R-SXR source comprises a 19" rack containing the gas subsystems, power delivery subsystem, and control electronics; the Electrodeless Z-Pinch™ source assembly with its integrated vacuum pumping; and a high efficiency pulse modulator. This modular design allows easy integration to the microscope or other applications equipment.
The EQ-10R-SXR is capable of delivering up to 400 milliwatts of 2.8 nm power into 2pi steradians and will run continuously at pulse repetition rates of up to 2 kHz. It's easy to install, requiring only electrical power, a chilled water supply, clean dry compressed air, and a supply of high purity Nitrogen.
