Sydney, Australia


At the 2012 triennial International Small-Angle Scattering Conference (, Bruker launches the METALJET, a novel and extremely bright microfocus X-ray source for structural biology applications. The unique METALJET is now offered exclusively by Bruker as a source option for D8 VENTURE™ protein crystallography systems and for NANOSTAR™ Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) systems.

At the European Conference on X-Ray Spectrometry (EXRS) Excillum today announced the extension of the MetalJet x-ray source family with the MetalJet D2. The MetalJet D2 offers the same performance as the 2011 R&D 100 Award winning MetalJet D1 (JXS-D1), the world’s brightest microfocus x-ray tube, but in a new improved physical format.

Yesterday, Swedish x-ray source manufacturer Excillum was awarded one of the prestigious R&D 100 awards for their unique liquid metal x-ray source. This source allows for a tenfold increase in brightness due to the power loading capability of the liquid metal anode.

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.
