Parallel beam graded multilayer X-ray monochromator
Maximizes intensity for parallel X-ray beam and high resolution diffraction
Max-Flux diffraction optic
Introduced by Rigaku Innovative Technologies in the early 1990’s, graded multilayer monochromators provide increased intensity for High-Resolution diffraction, Thin Film analysis and other 1-dimensional parallel beam XRD applications.
Max-Flux® Optics use graded multilayers, assuring the same X-ray energy diffracts from every point along the surface of the Parabolic optic. Rigaku’s Osmic® Coating technology provides results in less than 0.5% d-spacing variation. Such high precision means more flux is available for your experiment.
Optical precision is also critical to good performance. Using proprietary technology, standard Max-Flux optics are made within ~10 arcsec of the ideal curve. When the best performance is required, Rigaku applies new Arc)Sec® technology to achieve optical precision of ≤ 4 arcsec! As a 1-dimensional optic, divergence in the axial plane can be controlled through use of a Soller collimator.
Contact Rigaku for a suitable collimator for your application. Rigaku provides excellent housings for aligning Max-Flux optics on your instrument. Housing are available for operation in atmosphere or vacuum, for 40mm, 60mm, 80mm, 100mm and 120mm long optics.
