X-Ray Spectroscopy

X-ray spectroscopy is used to help researchers characterize materials and better understand the chemical and elemental properties of an object.

During x-ray spectroscopy, an x-ray beam is focused onto a sample. This bombardment of high-energy particles causes the studied object’s electrons to transition between energy levels. Various techniques can be utilized to measure these changes and identify the materials in question.

The materials being studied are often delicate and subject to x-ray damage after prolonged exposure. To help with quick data collection, fast imaging is essential. Sydor’s products were developed with this in mind. Browse our available soft x-ray detectors below.
