Paper Abstract

The XRF and XRD benchtop instrumentation face increasing demand for lowering the detection limits and increasing the accuracy and precision of the measurements. The x-ray tube is a vital component of XRF instruments, which affects the aforementioned characteristics. Moxtek is a leader in developing miniature X-ray sources for portable and handheld XRF instruments. We will present on our current x-ray sources which run from 4 to 70 kV and up to 12 watts. Additionally, we will presenting on prototype x-ray tubes. In this presentation we will be covering some of the basic functionality of each one of these sources, as well as some of the intended applications.
