X-Ray Lenses
Focused X–rays are used in many analysis applications to increase the resolution of an imaging system or reduce experiment time through higher photon flux. Microworks offers several types of refractive X-ray lenses made of epoxy polymer.
See the Spec Sheet below for an example. Custom X-ray lenses are available upon request.
