Press Release - Mar 18, 2010
STOCKHOLM, Sweden and KARLSRUHE, Germany
Excillum and Bruker AXS today announced an exclusive collaboration to develop and market a unique new metal-jet X-ray source for X-ray diffraction applications. This novel source is the fruit of many years of research at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. It is more than ten times brighter than the most powerful available laboratory sources. This unequalled brightness can greatly benefit any experiment that currently employs a rotating anode generator (RAG) source. Despite this unparalleled performance, the new source also features a cost of ownership which is very competitive with conventional RAG technology. Applications of interest include protein structure determination via X-ray crystallography, small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS and GI-SAXS) and all experiments where ultra-high X-ray flux on a small spot is essential.

The Biomedical & X-Ray Physics Group at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, Sweden, is awarded funding from VINNOVA's program for concept verification, VINN-Verification. This makes it possible to conduct a more comprehensive study of the technical and commercial aspects of the promising research results on metal-jet-anode x-ray sources.
