High-Resolution X-Ray Source
BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Dec. 7, 2009 – The L10711 microfocus x-ray source manufactured by Hamamatsu Corp. delivers the high resolution (0.25 µm minimum) and stability required for x-ray nondestructive inspection, 3-D imaging and computed tomography (CT).

Hamamatsu_microfocusX-rayso.jpgThe stable operation benefits customers performing x-ray CT scans. The built-in power supply and the improved cathode materials and design produce a stable x-ray focus spot size and stable continuous output. The cathode design also makes it easy to replace.

Conventional open type x-ray sources must be connected to a separate power supply unit, which can cause problems such as additional noise and damage from discharges. Having a built-in power supply eliminates those problems and the need for periodic maintenance.

Two types of cathodes, one for high resolution (S mode) and the other for high intensity (W mode) are available. With the high-resolution cathode, the source produces a minimum resolution of 0.25 µm and a tube voltage range of 20 to 100 kV. With the high-intensity cathode, it produces 8 W of intensity, a minimum resolution of 0.8 µm and a tube voltage range of 20 to 160 kV.

The S-mode single-crystal device is made of LaB6 cathode material, while the W-mode one is made of tungsten. Both have an x-ray tube current setting range of 0 to 200 µA and a maximum x-ray beam angle of ~140°, and the target material for both is tungsten. Operating temperature is from 15 to 40 °C.
