Our proven family of laboratory x-ray monochromators and x-ray emission (XES) spectrometers deliver synchrotron-quality spectra while providing everyday access for rapid discovery.

easyXAFS provides complete solutions, working with you to find your application’s best combination of detectors, radiation enclosures, special sample environments, and support software.


easyXAFS/XES Spectrometers

easyXES150, easyXAFS300, and easyXAFS300+

Our easyXAFS/XES line features our versatile, hard x-ray spectrometers. Using easily-maintained, standard x-ray tube sources, these instruments provide synchrotron-quality spectra from 4.5-12 keV in your own lab.

Example Measurements:


A fixed source spectrometer that gives fully research-quality, hard x-ray emission spectroscopy (XES) in synchrotron-comparable measurement times, using 100 Watt, conventional x-ray tube sources. The system is easily reconfigured for complementary transmission-mode XAFS capability. The optic system is modular with full pre-alignment; it only takes a few minutes to change energy ranges. Simple operations, rapid data collection.

A high-powered, fixed source spectrometer system using a 1.2 kW conventional x-ray tube coupled to modern x-ray optics and detectors. This laboratory system for x-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) provides very rapid transmission-mode measurements suitable for research and development in electrical energy storage or catalysis while also giving extremely high throughput for general sample characterization or product testing. The system can be upgraded to the easyXAFS300+ to include x-ray emission (XES) capabilities.


Get the best of both worlds, with high-powered XAFS for rapid measurements and high efficiency XES. This instrument uses the same high-powered, fixed source spectrometer as the easyXAFS300 system, with the addition of a low-powered x-ray tube and power supply suitable for performing high efficiency x-ray emission (XES) measurements.

Tender X-ray Spectrometer


The BRIMSTONE is a high performance tender x-ray emission spectrometer (2-5 keV). Using an innovative optical geometry and standard x-ray tube, this instrument provides synchrotron-quality x-ray emission spectra (XES) at synchrotron-level count rates. The ~1-eV energy resolution strongly outperforms all traditional WD-XRF systems in this energy range, with high-profile applications for sulfur and phosphorus speciation.
