Beamstops are miniature cylinders which block X-rays. They are predominantly used in X-ray microscopy. We offer a framed array of beamstops in various diameters. These beamstops are uniquely freestanding, which allows them to be used from a few 100 eV to several keV.

Mounting Hints
Beamstops of gold are sufficiently stable so that the devices can be clamped in simple holders
The device consists of 16 beamstops with different diameters.
Custom Beamstops

We offer custom beamstops made to your specifications.Options include particular gold heights, beamstop diameters, and open area diameters.
