Fundamental and Professional X-ray
Modular concept for Physics, Biology, Medicine, Chemistry, Mineralogy and Material Sciences.
Detailed information on the new FUNDAMENTAL and PROFESSIONAL X-RAY is available here (PDF).
The LEYBOLD X-ray apparatus is setting new standards in resolution and intensity in the field of education worldwide. Not only the high resolution of the Bragg spectra is impressive, but also the new high-resolution X-ray image sensor, the
reliable X-ray energy detector and the gold tube.
The modular structure of the system enables both a low-cost introduction (FUNDAMENTAL Experiments) and advanced applications (PROFESSIONAL Experiments) for several different test subjects.
Various experiment options at grammar schools, colleges and universities
For every requirement and every budget
The LEYBOLD X-ray system has a modular structure and enables the individual
configuration of the separate appliances, so that you only buy what you actually need.
In addition to the basic equipment, you can choose your accessories for basic experiments (FUNDAMENTAL Experiments) or advanced applications (PROFESSIONAL Experiments) depending on the experiment requirements.
The basic equipment (FUNDAMENTAL EXPERIMENTS) contain the following components:
- X-ray apparatus
The X-ray apparatus is available in two variants - as a basic apparatus or as a complete apparatus with a Mo tube, goniometer and NaCl monocrystal. If you wish to use other tubes, the X-ray basic apparatus is the most flexible solution. You can extend the X-ray apparatus with
a drawer for your accessories irrespective of this.
No matter whether you are interested in Bragg spectra, X-ray energy spectra or computed tomography, you will be happy with the precision and high resolution of the goniometer.
In addition to the Mo tube, there are other tubes, which are more suitable for special areas of application, e.g. Cu tube for Debye-Scherrer diagrams, Ag tube for X-ray fluorescence due to its high energy K-lines, W or Au tubes for radiation and computed tomography due to their high intensity.
- X-ray energy detector
The X-ray energy detector exposes energy-dispersive X-ray spectra with the CASSY system. Using the X-ray energy spectra, various chemical elements can be easily distinguished by means of their characteristic X-ray radiation and their mass fraction can also be determined. This also confirms the Compton effect.
- Computed tomography module
The X-ray apparatus has a laterally installed fluorescent screen, on which X-rays can be seen directly. The computed tomography module captures this visible X-ray image and the software provided there controls the rotation of the object in the X-ray apparatus through 360° and carries out the back projection of the X-ray image for the real-time 3D reconstruction.
- Bragg spectra
With the complete apparatus with a Mo tube, you have everything you need for capturing your first Bragg spectrum. Other available monocrystals and/or X-ray tubes offer several possible variations.
For advanced experiments (PROFESSIONAL EXPERIMENTS) the following components are available:
- Computed tomograhy PRO
If the resolution of the computed tomo-graphy module is insufficient, the X-ray image sensor provides the solution with its megapixel resolution and its 12-bit grey scale. With this, voxel resolutions up to an edge length of below 50 μm are possible. The X-ray image sensor also provides a comfortable and fast solution for Laue diagrams.
- HD accessory
With the HD accessory consisting of a high-resolution collimator and counter tube holder with narrow gaps and new software, the angular resolution of the goniometer increases to 0.01°. Bragg spectra with a 4-fold resolution are possible with this.
- Gold tube
The gold tube is the Leybold tube with the highest intensity. It is particularly suitable for capturing X-ray images, Laue diagrams or computed tomograms. In addition to the Tungsten tube, it is also the only tube whose Bragg spectra consist of L-lines.
The wide range of tubes
The LEYBOLD X-ray tubes are available with the anode materials copper, iron, silver, molybdenum, tungsten and gold. In this way, you will always be able to use the tube that is best suited to the particular application.
