Product Overview

High Resolution Beam Imaging is made possible with the Beam Imaging Solutions HRBIS systems. The HRBIS can be used to measure two or three dimensional intensity distributions of ion, electron and neutral beams. The HRBIS can also be used to image X-rays for applications such as pinhole imaging and spectroscopy. Images are created using a micro-channel plate (MCP) and phosphor screen combination. The phosphor is uniformly deposited onto a coherent fiber-optic (FO) substrate so that the image can be optically transmitted to the outside of a vacuum system for analysis. The image is coherently transmitted using a series of FO conduits to a vacuum viewport at which the image can be viewed by eye or recorded and processed with CID or CCD camera systems. The HRBIS systems are available in many different configurations to best fit a customer’s particular application and budget. Our quote form makes it easy to request the price of the configuration that you need.

The Model HRBIS-11000 High Resolution Beam Imaging System is shown below. The image on the right shows the camera adapter ring that is standard with the HRBIS. The ring has threaded holes for attaching a camera mounting system, available with all of the optional camera systems.
