Flexible for Large Samples & Integrated Systems

m-Laue Flexible Single Crystal Orientation System

A side-by-side comparison of Pulstec’s m-Laue single crystal orientation system in a shield box and on a tripod.

How It Works

Pulstec’s inline single crystal orientation can be configured for on-site and lab use. Similar to our original s-Laue model, the m-Laue is intuitive. It only takes three simple steps to determine single crystal orientation:

  1. Use its CCD camera to set your sample and adjust to the right working distance.
  2. Use the m-Laue software to start the X-ray irradiation and detection process.
  3. Calculate the crystal’s orientation by fitting the Laue spots.

Features & Benefits

  • Fast Measurements: The m-Laue can acquire Laue spots of single crystal materials within 60 seconds.
  • Vertical Irradiation: This system allows vertical irradiation for easier sample setup, orientation flexibility, and improved resolution of Laue spots. Just align the object’s position with the vertical X-ray.
  • Integrated Air Cooling: This single crystal orientation system features an air-cooled X-ray generator and high-sensitivity detector, eliminating the need for an external water chiller.
  • Application Flexibility: The m-Laue’s X-ray sensor can be configured for mapping, on-site analysis, and/or system integration.

Shield Box

Pulstec offers three shield box sizes:

  • Standard: 0.8m (Width) x 0.6m (Depth) x 0.6m (Height)
  • Middle: 1.4m (Width) x 0.9m (Depth) x 0.8m (Height)
  • Large: 2.0m (Width) x 1.2m (Depth) x 1.0m (Height)

All options have zero radiation leakage.
