Collaboration between Excillum, Bruker AXS, and Incoatec



Almost exactly two years have passed since Incoatec started cooperating with the company Excillum, Stockholm. Excillum develops and produces extreme brightness microfocus X-ray sources for a wide variety of applications according to a unique metal-jet-anode concept. As a result of this collaboration, extremely high X-ray intensities have been achieved with a combination of Excillum's source and Incoatec's Montel multilayer optics, at a divergence useful for single-crystal diffraction. This is a multiple of intensity that can be obtained using the best state-of-the-art rotating anode generator with comparable multilayer optics.

We are happy to announce that this fruitful collaboration has led to a broader, exclusive collaboration between Excillum and Bruker AXS with the aim of developing and marketing Excillum's unique new metaljet X-ray source for X-ray diffraction applications.
