Diamond targets are mainly used for microfocus tubes in transmission geometry. With their help, the brilliance of these X-ray tubes can be significantly increased. However, a significant increase in performance is also possible with reflection or direct beam tubes. Due to the extremely high thermal conductivity, the heat from thin tungsten layers can be dissipated very efficiently, so that even at high heat flux densities, the melting of the target material can be prevented.
Specifications and options:
2 - 20 mm diameter
Tungsten coated diamond targets brazed to custom-designed metal carriers; compatibility with existing X-ray tubes
400 – 1000 µm
"thermal grade" CVD-Diamond (thermal conductivity > 1800 W/mK)
