Environmental & Materials Science
Our X-Ray windows are available with freestanding silicon nitride or G-FLAT® silicon dioxide membranes in a range of window sizes and membrane thicknesses for various vacuum and temperature conditions.
Soft X-Ray diffraction studies
Our 500 x 500 micron silicon nitride membranes with 50 nm and 100 nm thick single windows withstand full vacuum differential pressure and permit high X-Ray transmission across a wide spectrum.
Liquid cells for biological X-Ray studies
Our 1,500 x 1,500 micron and 2,500 x 2,500 micron silicon nitride membranes offer large imaging areas and high X-Ray transmission and are compatible with partial vacuum conditions.
Material elemental analyses
Our proprietary G-FLAT® silicon dioxide membranes permit analysis for elements through a nitrogen-free substrate and are compatible with partial vacuum conditions.
Our X-Ray Window Materials
State-of-the-art manufacturing processes and an expert engineering team allow us to offer all variations of our X-Ray Windows at competitive prices. Unlike our competitors, all our X-Ray Windows are made entirely in the USA.
Low-stress LPCVD Silicon Nitride membranes are mechanically strong and well-suited for high temperature and differential pressure environments.
All of our X-Ray Windows can be vigorously plasma cleaned to remove organic contamination.
Flat, uniformly deposited films provide consistent backgrounds with low field-to-field variability and high X-Ray transmission.
G-FLAT™ Silicon Dioxide
Proprietary wrinkle-free substrate
Our G-FLAT™ Silicon Dioxide membranes are well-suited for correlative optical and X-Ray microscopy and analyses requiring a nitrogen-free background.
