X-Ray Beam Monitor (XBM)

ADC, in collaboration with Advanced Photon Source (APS), has developed (designed & tested) a compact x-ray beam monitor (XBM) for alignment and direct measurement of x-ray beams applications such as: aligning mirrors, monochromators, collimators, slits, area detectors, and sample positioning (https://www1.aps.anl.gov/Detectors/Point-Detectors). The detector system consists of a photodiode and miniature coaxial connector to interface with an electronics package. The XBM photodiode active area is 20mm x 20mm and is mounted in an aluminum housing (other, smaller, dimensions are possible through a custom order). There are several 8-32 tapped holes (designed for the THORLABS mounted post) on the housing, allowing for multiple mounting configurations.


ADC has over 17 years of experience and extensive capability in the machining and manufacturing of complex systems for the scientific community. We focus mainly on synchrotrons and neutron sources. We have an in house physicist and engineers for such things as magnet modeling for undulators, optics for beam lines, FEA and thermal analysis, as well as other disciplines. We have the facilities and equipment for UHV applications such as a class-50 clean room, leak checkers, RGAs, vacuum pumps, and UHV component cleaning and bagging facilities, as well as a highly trained staff.
