Turn-Key XAFS and XES
Our proven family of laboratory x-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) and x-ray emission (XES) spectrometers deliver synchrotron-quality spectra while providing onsite, everyday access for rapid feedback and progress.
Our easyXAFS/XES product line features versatile, hard x-ray spectrometers. Using easily-maintained, industry-standard x-ray tube sources, these instruments provide synchrotron-quality spectra from 4.5-12+ keV in your own lab.
Hard X-ray instruments cover all the highlighted elements
A high-powered spectrometer system using a 1.2 kW conventional XRD-style 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. Our highest performing instrument for XANES and EXAFS.
300+ upgrade: Add a dedicated XRF-style x-ray tube for high efficiency XES measurements.
300+ upgrade: Get the best of both worlds, with high-powered XAFS for rapid measurements and add on high efficiency XES with a dedicated XRF-style x-ray tube for maximum flux.
3d-transition metals XAFS
With the wide energy range of our hard x-ray spectrometers, high-quality XANES and EXAFS of all the 3d transition metals from Ti to Zn can be measured. These elements are crucial in critical areas of modern research from batteries to catalysis, environmental remediation, and more.
Co K-edge Rapid XANES
Our hard x-ray spectrometers enable high quality data collection with energy resolution matching the synchrotron. Excellent performance is achieved in a matter of minutes. This enables the collection of large data sets in short time frames as well as real-time tracking of reaction processes.
NMC Ni K-edge
High performance Ni K-edge XANES of pristine NMC 442 and NMC 811 battery electrodes. The change in the Ni K-edge position reflects the change in Ni oxidation state related to the different NMC compositions.
A spectrometer that gives fully research-quality, hard x-ray emission spectroscopy (XES) using a 100 Watt, conventional x-ray tube source. 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. In contrast to the liquid-cooled x-ray tubes of the higher powered system, the easyXES150 uses simpler air-cooled x-ray tubes which reduces complexity and makes this spectrometer a more economical, lower maintenance choice.

Our hard x-ray spectrometers enable high quality data collection with energy resolution matching the Synchrotron. Excellent performance is achieved in a matter of minutes.
We make spectroscopy easy.
Tender X-ray instruments cover all the highlighted elements
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.
