Moxtek Side Window X-ray Sources are used primarily for XRD and imaging applications. The small spot size and the short spot-to-object distance (minimum of 7mm) allow the use of high geometrical magnification in imaging applications. Smaller spot size translates directly into a higher spatial resolution at the detector.
The large x-ray cone angle provides for a large viewing area at the detector.
Side window tubes have approximately 30% higher x-ray flux compared to end window tubes, which helps in applications that rely on counting low numbers of photons, such as X-Ray Diffraction (XRD).
