World's most brilliant compact  
x-ray sources

Advancing x-ray Imaging

Our liquid metal target based x-ray generation innovations  
See our laser-driven LPXSource installation at ELI Beamlines below.
Compact Design 

Our plasma source, including all of its support systems and x-ray shielding, fits into a volume of 2’ x 3’ x 1’. A complete system with its driving laser typically fits onto a 8’x’4’ optical table and is therefore small enough for laboratory based research. The sources can operate at any repetition rate and produce a usable x-ray flux with as little as 1mJ / pulse.

System Integration 

Our source can be integrated in an existing or new x-ray optical setup. The system integration can be done by us or we can provide technical advice for integration.

Who We Are

Research Instruments Corporation develops liquid metal target based x-ray source technologies and x-ray imaging devices that outperform conventional x-ray tube technology including the laser-driven x-ray plasma source LPXSource.  Suitable for scientific, medical and industrial applications, our devices are engineered to be compact, ultra-low maintenance, and ultra-fast. Our sources and imaging techniques bring the power of large user facilities into your own lab or OEM system.
