New Synchrotron X-ray Optics Announced
We are proud to announce Sigray's new series of high resolution and high efficiency synchrotron X-ray optics with resolution options ranging from 0.2 to 10 um for a wide range of x-ray energies between 0.1 to 60 keV.
These optics are designed to replace Kirkpatrick-Baez mirrors for a multitude of applications, and offer the following advantages:
- Higher flux density of 4X vs KB mirrors
- Large demagnification of the source to enable building shorter, more cost-effective beamlines
- Compact form factor so that multiple lenses can be mounted in a turret within a single beamline, allowing optimization for different applications and parameters (e.g. energy, convergence angle, spot size, working distance, etc.)
A brochure of the KB mirror optic has been released and can be found here.
