X-ray Analyzer Components-Our Products
Even Smaller and Lighter . . . We Develop Portable Devices
X-ray Analyzer Components
X-ray fluorescence analysis has been used widely for composition analysis of minerals, metals and biological samples thanks to its advantages that samples cannot be destroyed by analysis (non-destructive analysis) and that analysis can be made in a relatively short period of time. Capable of element analysis peculiar to explosives and prohibited chemicals, it is also used in security check at airports and other places.
For environmental conservation coming to the fore in recent times, portable X-ray fluorescence analyzers are playing significant roles in screening of hazardous heavy metals and in resources recycling.
These characteristics of the X-ray fluorescence analysis is made even easier to use by Polatechno's portable X-ray fluorescence analyzer components. Originally developed for the Apollo Program, our compact, lightweight and battery-powered X-ray generator and detector are contributing greatly to making analyzer units more compact and lightweight.
Our company develops and manufactures primary components for portable X-ray analyzers, as follows:
Window components: High X-ray transmittance and low gas transmittance are required.
JFETs (Junction Field Effect Transistors): Lower-noise components are required.
X-ray detectors: Smaller-size components are required.
X-ray source tubes: Components that are smaller in size and can withstand high voltages are required.
Function of each component in analysis
X-ray analyzer components are produced by our American subsidiary MOXTEK, Inc. MOXTEK is a nanotechnology-focused venture business to manufacture and sell inorganic polarizer and X-ray analyzer components. It was established by a professor of Brigham Young University who had been commissioned by NASA to develop components for a compact X-ray analyzer. MOXTEK joined the Polatechno Group in 2004.
