Excillum receives R&D 100 Award for liquid metal x-ray source

One of the main limiting factors for a traditional x-ray source is the thermal management of the solid fixed, or rotating, anode leading to overheating or even melting as the electron beam power is increased. Excillum's source overcomes this problem by replacing the solid anode with a high speed jet of liquid metal. In this way, the anode is already molten and continuously regenerated, thereby allowing much higher power loading.

- It is a true honor to receive the recognition of the R&D 100 Award on the first product we launch says Oscar Hemberg, CEO of Excillum. And the timing is excellent as it is just made available to the x-ray diffraction market through our collaboration with Bruker-AXS and we are beginning the process of looking for partners and customers in the other markets where we feel our extreme-brightness source can make a difference.

The uniqueness of Excillum's x-ray source is its extreme brightness, i.e., its ability to generate more x-rays from a small spot compared to other techniques. This makes the source very suitable not only for x-ray diffraction, but also for applications such as X-Ray Inspection, Micro Computed Tomography and Phase Contrast Imaging.
