Microfocus high-intensity sealed tube X-ray source
X-ray source component for X-ray diffraction and crystallography
The MicroMax-003 is a third generation microfocus sealed tube X-ray generator. It is the perfect X-ray source for someone who wants the benefits of a microfocus X-ray source (low power consumption and long tube life) without the added maintenance that goes along with a more powerful rotating anode microfocus X-ray source. It consists of a tightly coupled microfocus generator and specially designed confocal multilayer optic to provide an extremely low-maintenance system. With performance that exceeds that of the previous generation of 5.4 kW RU rotating anode generators, the MicroMax-003 is the perfect upgrade path for users of these systems.
Engineered for ProductivityProductivity can be measured in many ways but the up-time of a system is perhaps one of the most important issues. The MicroMax-003 will run maintenance free for years, and when you do have to change an X-ray tube, it has been designed to be as easy as a standard sealed tube X-ray source.
Designed for FlexibilityFeaturing a built-in multilayer optic, the MicroMax-003 can be integrated into a number of different X-ray systems. This source a great complement for labs that have ready access to synchrotrons as well as limited maintenance resources.
- Very small beam, less than 100 microns at the crystal, provides superior signal to noise.
- 3 year warranty on the tube reduces cost of ownership.
- Integrated optics are optimized for the detector type (HPAD or IP).
- Integrated Confocal MaxFlux double bounce optic. The double-bounce μCMF optics provide up to 70X better Cu Kβ suppression than single bounce optics, providing a beam with less noise, lower divergence and more intensity, allowing for more accurate data collection on small crystal samples.

The MicroMax-003 can be used for a variety of applications where a small stable X-ray beam is desired. Final beam characteristics are defined by the optic that is used. Dfferent models of optics are available based on whether the desired beam is focused or parallel, and if focused, what is the desired beam size at the focal point and divergence of the beam.
