How Our Portaspecs Work
The x-ray tube beam excites the various elements in the sample represented by the colored arrows. They are guided through a collimator on to an analyzing crystal that separates the elements by their varying wavelengths. The wavelength energy is then guided through an upper collimator and into a detector tub.
