The system is combining the latest state-of-the-art components for highest resolution!
One main component of the system is Excillum’s high performance X‑ray source NanoTube N2, a up to 110 kV X‑ray tube with latest tungsten-diamond transmission target technology, automatic e‑beam focusing and astigmatism correction, ensuring that the smallest possible, truly round X‑ray spot is achieved.
The second main component is the photon counting X‑ray detector from DECTRIS. This detector enables an optimum signal-to-noise ratio due to zero readout noise and zero dark current. Moreover, dual energy discrimination enables digital spectrum adjustment.
Two separate manipulation systems allow a very precise detector and sample positioning. A high-precision air bearing rotary stage delivers a well-defined sample rotation, mounted on top of a linear position system with 3 DOFs. A separate manipulation (2 DOFs) system on top of the rotation stage is installed for automatic adjusting the sample position in the center of the rotation.
