Advanced measurement equipment for a variety of markets


Silicon Pore Optics (SPO)

High quality X-ray mirrors. Due to the hollow pores the most lightweight high quality X-ray optics that currently exists.

This is the optics selected for the ESA ATHENA project.

X-Ray interferometry

Combining interferometry in combination with Silicon Pore Optics, cosine HEO can deliver optics with unprecedented angular precision.

Laue Lens

For very hard X-Ray/Gamma Ray applications and shorter focal lengths, a Laue lens can be an efficient alternative method of focussing.

High-energy optics simulation

Quickly determine realistic system performances and features
