Extended X-ray Absorption EXAFS (5-12keV)


A complete lab-based solution for Extended X-ray Absorption Fine Structure (EXAFS) and X-ray 

Absorption Near Edge Structure (XANES) measurements.

In a compact footprint, it integrates x-ray tube source, high-resolution spectrometer, and hybrid 

detector together with a software suite to control instrument functions and analyze data. Spectra 

quality is on par with synchrotron measurements hence beamtime application is not required.

The x-ray tube source and spectrometer cover the energy range 5 to 12 keV, thus including the K 

absorption edges of 3d-transition metals. The optimized HAPG von Hamos architecture of the 

spectrometer yields an extremely high signal-to-noise ratio.This results in the analyte 

concentration being weighted lowly at few percentage.The instrument combines high efficiency 

with high spectral resolving power of up to E/ΔE = 4000, constant over the range of the covered 

absorption edges.
