Lansing, NY, April 17, 2013 – ADC Inc. announced today it has developed a Fluorescent Screen x-ray beam monitor (FC-204) which allows the user to view the position and profile of an incident X-ray beam. The full assembly of the fluorescent screen consists of three main components: a custom 4-way cross, a linear actuator mounted on top of the 4-way cross, and a water-cooled fluorescent screen.
The screen plates, which are available both cooled and un-cooled, are coated with a fluorescent material to convert x-rays to visible light, and can be moved in and out of the beam by remote control. A CCD camera and motorized zoom lens look up through a viewport directly onto the grid plate of the screen; camera magnification and focus can also be controlled remotely. In making the announcement, ADC President and CEO, Alexander Deyhim, stated “This technology represents the cutting edge science, innovation and creativity that ADC’s engineers and scientists are bringing to both the scientific and engineering communities.”
