Confocal Max-Flux SAXS

Specialized Optic for Use In SAXS Applications

Special Confocal Max-Flux optic designed for use in small angle scattering

Confocal Max-Flux® Beam Conditioning Optics for X-ray diffraction offer high intensity, high flux, high flux density, and high resolution. The unique side-by-side optical geometry creates a compact assembly that can simultaneously monochromatize and either focus or collimate a divergent X-ray beam

Confocal Max-Flux SAXS Overview

Confocal Max-Flux® with Arc)Sec® Technology

When the highest optical precision is required, proprietary Arc)Sec® technology is combined with Confocal Max-Flux® optics to provide multilayer optics with < 4 arcsec precision in optical figure. Arc)Sec® Confocal Max-Flux® optics provide increased flux and decreased background with very uniform beam profiles, capable of achieving beam spots under 5 microns diameter.

Design Flexibility

Monochromatize while simultaneously achieving one of the following:

  • Focus a beam from one point to another – a significant increase in monochromatic flux density at the focal point
  • Collimate a beam from a point source to illuminate a specific area
  • Focus a parallel beam – a significant increase in monochromatic flux density at the focal point

As the longest operating commercial manufacturer of multilayer optics, RIT’s Confocal Max-Flux® optics provide the highest flux, cleanest spectrum and most uniform beam profile of any multilayer optics available today. Customizable bandwidth can be achieved by configuring the optic and multilayer parameters.
