Max-Flux XRD

    Parallel Beam Graded Multilayer X-ray Monochromator

    Maximizes intensity for parallel X-ray beam and high resolution diffraction

    Introduced by Rigaku Innovative Technologies in the early 1990s, graded multilayer monochromators provide increased intensity for high-resolution diffraction, thin film analysis and other 1-dimensional parallel beam XRD applications.

    Max-Flux® optics use graded multilayers, assuring the same X-ray energy diffracts from every point along the surface of the parabolic optic. Rigaku’s Osmic® coating technology provides results in less than 0.5% d-spacing variation. Such high precision means more flux is available for your experiment.

    Max-Flux XRD Overview

    Optical precision is also critical to good performance. Using proprietary technology, standard Max-Flux optics are made within ~10 arcsec of the ideal curve. When the best performance is required, Rigaku applies new Arc)Sec® technology to achieve optical precision of ≤ 4 arcsec! As a 1-dimensional optic, divergence in the axial plane can be controlled through use of a Soller collimator.

    Contact Rigaku for a suitable collimator for your application. Rigaku provides excellent housings for aligning Max-Flux optics on your instrument. Housing are available for operation in atmosphere or vacuum, for 40 mm, 60 mm, 80 mm, 100 mm and 120 mm long optics.
