In XRM, contrast depends on the material being imaged and the X-ray energy used. The Xradia Ultra family comprises Xradia 800 Ultra, operating at 8 keV photon energy, and Xradia 810 Ultra, operating at 5.4 keV. In general, lower energy X-rays are absorbed more strongly and therefore will provide you with higher contrast. Thus, as long as transmission remains sufficient, you will experience resulting image quality and/or throughput that are greatly improved with Xradia 810 Ultra. For materials of higher density, or thick specimens, you may need the higher X-ray energy of Xradia 800 Ultra for sufficient transmission.
- Improve imaging contrast and throughput for low to medium density materials
- For materials such as rock and dentin, a ten-times throughput increase at equivalent image quality has been demonstrated
