Simultaneous XRD/XRF with low-power X-Ray tubes

A test bench instrument constructed at Moxtek, Inc. is capable of simultaneously capturing x-ray diffraction (XRD) and x-ray fluorescence (XRF) information using a charge-coupled device (CCD) as the x-ray detector. NASA is funding the instrument’s construction because of its low-power consumption and compact size; it could be used for in-situ planetary exploration missions for mineral analysis.

An XRD/XRF Instrument for the Microanalysis of Rocks and Minerals

A breadboard setup constructed at Moxtek® is capable of capturing both x-ray diffraction (XRD) and x-ray fluorescence (XRF) information simultaneously using a charge-coupled device (CCD) as the x-ray detector. This preliminary setup will lead to a prototype simultaneous XRD/XRF instrument.

Characterization Techniques for Miniature Low Power X-Ray Tubes

An x-ray shielded test chamber has been designed and built that includes a CCD-pinhole camera and energy-dispersive silicon PIN-diode detector for spectrum collection. The use of this chamber is an innovative approach that allows rapid imaging of the electron beam spot on the anode, as well as the spectral characterization of the tube.

Improvements in Low Power, End-Window, Transmission-Target X-Ray Tubes

End-window transmission-target x-ray tubes are designed for very close anode-to-sample coupling for compact portable XRF instruments. Several recent improvements have been achieved to make these tubes considerably brighter, with better output stability and even smaller size and lower power consumption for handheld instrumentation.
