Mini XRF (6 replies)

Is there such a thing as a mini XRF, I mean an XRF with dimension around 10cm x 10cm x 10cm?

There is certainly "small" portable XRF instruments available, but not quite that small. What is your application that requires these dimensions?

Such a size is not a standard market product - it would probably offer poor performance due to optics limitations. Maybe it exists in the military or aerospace field, but a mini XRF will probably come with a hefty price tag.

As others have mentioned, this is not a standard size and there are no widely commercialized products with this dimension- the physics packages all tend to be larger in at least one dimension than you specify. Recent advances in X-ray tube size would likely make this dimension possible with some creative engineering- and an appropriately scaled cost.

See and Amptek sells parts to build your own XRF. This might offer the flexibility you need.

Great stuff, and not so big, but there are some optical constraints when designing an instrument from components.

INEL makes a mini XRD close to these dimensions.
