BulletInstallation of an IµS

In December 2009 a group headed by Dr. Pierre Bordet at the CNRS Institut Néel, Grenoble received the Ag-IµS. A team of engineers and scientists from Bruker AXS SAS France and Incoatec GmbH installed the high brilliant Microfocus Source at the Institut Néel.

Incoatec Microfocus Source IµS

Test the Best

  • 30 W air-cooled sealed tube (Cr, Cu, Mo, Ag)
  • 3 years warranty
  • New Quazar optics for 2D focussing or collimating
  • Stable beam in flux and position, long lifetime, no maintenance




IµS stands for "Incoatec Microfocus Source". It consists of a 30 W microfocus sealed tube with high brilliance and a high-performance 2D focussing or collimating Quazar multilayer mirror. IµS is available for Cr-Kα, Cu-Kα, Mo-Kα and Ag-Kα radiation and gives you a performance beyond traditional 5 kW rotating anode sources, with the ease of handling of sealed tube systems.

The IµS offers numerous benefits:

  • no moving parts
  • long lifetime without maintenance
  • extremely stable
  • short warm-up time
  • no water cooling
  • easy tube replacement
  • easy adaptable to all common goniometers
  • low cost of ownership, comparable to common sealed tubes

IµS is powered by a small generator unit which easily fits into a 19 inch rack, and can be delivered with a collimator system. The complete system is radiation safe and vacuum tested.

IµS is available with many accessories and various service packages:

Accessories & services

  • Alignment tools (motors, beam monitors)
  • Flexible service packages up to "total care service"
