Solid anode electron impact source
The Model 642 soft x-ray electron impact light source may be used for photo physics experiments and element specific extreme ultraviolet (XUV) measurements. It is routinely used for spectrometer calibration and characterization of camera/sensor systems. The newly redesigned electron impact soft x-ray source has many features. Two versions are available, single anode and multiple anode, with six (6) anode carousel. In both models, the anodes are easily replaced to change the emission energies at atmosphere. For calibration / process applications, the multiple emission ports may illuminate sample / reference detectors simultaneously. It is available in 1, 10 and 30 watt power ratings.
The new controller is an easy to use high voltage power supply and e-beam emitting filament current controller. It provides integrated and safety interlocked control of the electron impact soft x-ray light source. A dedicated cable connects the controller to the light source’s vacuum enclosure.
