Silicon for X-ray Analytical Applications

Enabling analytical excellence
PI-KEM supply silicon for X-ray Analytical Applications as crystals, silicon E's, zero diffraction plates, monochromators, channel cut, flat plates & 2D optics

Silicon is a versatile material that is widely used in a variety of X-ray analytical applications. Its unique properties make it an ideal material for X-ray detectors, optics, and monochromators.

These properties include:

  • Low absorption coefficient: X-rays can penetrate deeply into the material without being significantly absorbed. This allows for the analysis of samples with a wide range of thicknesses
  • High purity: Important for X-ray analytical applications because impurities can interfere with the measurements
  • Chemical and mechanical stability: Less affected by the X-ray process
  • High availability: Cost-effective choice for X-ray analytical applications

PI-KEM offers a range of silicon formats designed for use in X-ray analysis, all with tightly controlled tolerances.
