HIGHLY TRANSMISSIVE FOILS AND WINDOW ASSEMBLIES FOR X-RAY APPLICATIONS
As the demands of analytical and medical X-ray equipment become more refined, the need for high performance components that produce more precise images is increasingly important. Our advanced X-ray foils and window assemblies are made from high purity beryllium. In some cases, we can use the highest purity beryllium to make window assemblies that are artifact-free to achieve even more accurate and clear results.
Beryllium offers advantages for X-ray equipment that other materials can’t provide, including:
Highly transmissive to X-rays
Optically opaque material
High strength enables very thin windows
Combined, the properties above make beryllium the material of choice for X-ray generators and detectors.
NEW CASE STUDY: IMPROVING MEDICAL IMAGING WITH BERYLLIUM
Varex Imaging Corporation, a world leader in medical X-rays and image processing solutions, streamlined their production of advanced X-ray systems working with Materion to supply them with high purity beryllium X-ray windows.
