Company Profile

CrystOpt-X AB, the main activity is the production of diffraction elements and reflective optics used in the X-ray and neutron beams. The first developed diffraction element was the very much desired double side machined Johansson crystal in single crystal silicon (main orientations) up to 300 millimeters in length, and bendable down to 500 millimeters radius. Other diffraction elements as single blocks or channel cut and many different geometries are also included in this group. With the same functionality, the multilayers, constitute also an offered product of CrystOpt-X AB. A second range of products which CrystOpt-X is manufacturing are the very high precision surface shapes, starting with simple flat, for deflection, ending with ellipsoidal or toroidal for both, vertical and horizontal simultaneous focusing. The materials used are mainly silicon, fused silica and zerodur® with a maximum length of 1.2 meters, and all can also be coated with materials like gold, rhodium, palladium and other high-density materials, on request. Surface quality as micro-roughness is now down to 3 Ångström and improving, and the level of surface shape can get down to 0.1 micro-radian of slope error. Expected in May 2019 (work is in progress on a prototype), long effective life time of optical elements for neutron guides will become another product which CrystOpt-X will proudly offer. Being an R&D oriented facility, CrystOpt-X AB is www.crystopt-x.se CrystOpt-X AB Verkstadsgatan 15, 26135, Landskrona, Sweden looking forward to improve and innovate, undertaking challenges in both, the field of surface shape metrology and the fabrication technologies of new desired optical shapes or functionalities.

Core Competences
