Breakthrough—all limitations of traditional electric cooling overcome! New X-ray detector requires no liquid nitrogen,

August 28, 2002


Horiba has developed a new liquid-nitrogen-free X-ray detector, the core component of Energy Dispersive X-ray (EDX) microanalyzers, and will start accepting orders for the new product in September. Because this product is combined with electron microscopes, it will use ultra-low-vibration cooling units that have been newly developed. This breakthrough overcomes vibration effects on electron microscopes and problems with cooling capacity that had been shortcomings of traditional electronic cooling methods. As a top manufacturer of X-ray analysis equipment, by adding this product to the lineup, we are responding to the diverse needs of our customers.
