Moxtek® is a leading manufacturer of X-ray windows for low energy X-ray detection. Moxtek manufactures ultra-thin polymer X-ray windows that are attached to metal mounts which house energy dispersive X-ray detectors such as Silicon Drift Detectors (SDDs). These windows allow for transmission of low energy X-rays while maintaining a hermetic seal critical for the X-ray […] Read more


Moxtek® X-ray Windows are very thin and fragile, great care should be taken while handling these windows. The guidelines below must be strictly followed in order to prevent damage to the window. View document

AP3 ultra-thin polymer windows manufactured at Moxtek® receive two quality inspections before being shipped to customers, once before installation into various mounts View document

This preliminary setup will lead to a prototype simultaneous XRD/XRF instrument. View document


Moxtek® delivers each AP window in a mount appropriate for each customer. The windows are bonded to a mount using vacuum compatible adhesive. This Technical Note provides general guidelines to use when designing mounts for Moxtek AP windows. View document

A first prototype XRD/XRF instrument was developed at NASA Ames Research Center and is currently in use at Los Alamos National Laboratory. The intended applications for this instrument are for planetary exploration and as a portable instrument for terrestrial use. View document


The MX-40 has a very small gate capacitance (0.26 pF). This is accomplished by making the diameter (“width”) of the gate very small. View document

To gain a better understanding and measure of miniature x-ray sources so that performance can be optimized in your application. View document


The electron field-emission properties of carbon nanotubes enable the fabrication of cold cathodes for a variety of vacuum device applications. The utilization of these cathodes is an attractive alternative for the replacement of thermionic or hot cathodes for generating X-rays. View document
