High-intensity design

By fully utilizing the possibilities of ceramic design, a very close coupling of the anode to the sample was realized, yielding a high intensity at low power settings. Furthermore, the Epsilon tube can operate over a wide range of kV/mA settings, maintaining high power and intensity at even low kV. This flexibility enables selection of optimum excitation conditions resulting in excellent analytical performance, even for the light elements like F, Na and Mg. In addition a Be window with a thickness of only 50 µm increases the light-element performance even further.
