Polycapillary X-ray Optics for Micro XRF and XRD

High quality optical accessories


These state-of-the-art optics capture a large solid angle of X-rays from a source and redirect them to a micron-sized focal spot or highly collimated beam. The use of polycapillary optics can significantly enhance the performance of X-ray analysis in many applications, including X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and X-ray diffraction (XRD).


  • X-ray flux density gain up to 10,000 times greater than conventional pinhole collimator
  • Focal spot as small as 5µm
  • Broad spectral bandwidth: 10eV-50keV


  • Customizable optic design for optimal performance
  • Halo reduction optics optimized for high-energy applications
  • Increased analytical speed in micro XRF for fine-feature analysis and high-resolution mapping
  • Large, quasi-parallel X-ray beam for XRD and XRF


  • Micro XRF for elemental mapping, plating thickness and fine feature analysis
  • Micro XRF, micro XAS and confocal XRF
  • Powder XRD, texture and stress analysis, WDS and confocal XRF.
