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

With the miniaturization of XRF instrumentation, there has been a need for a compact, portable, battery-powered X-ray tube. In 2001 MOXTEK introduced a miniature X-ray tube designed to address the needs of handheld XRF analyzers. View document

For a number of years the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source (CHESS) has been fabricating and using single-bounce monocapillary optics to produce x-ray microbeams. With our current technology, these optics have achieved beam sizes of 5 to 50 of 2 to 10 mrad, and gains of 10 to 1000. View document

Moxtek now has a full energy dispersive detector solution with Moxtek’s MXDPP-50. We will present characterization details of the DPP with Moxtek’s XPIN® detectors, including resolution verses peaking time, resolution and peak channel verses the input count rate, and other characterization details.
