How Our Portaspecs Work
The PortaSpec applies power to an x-ray tube which in turn excites elements in the sample. The resulting energy is guided through a collimator on to an analyzing crystal that separates the elements by their wavelength. The wavelength energy is then guided through an upper collimator and into a detector tube where the resutls are measured and compiled in the PortaSpec softwwre for results and further analysis.
