Photonis designed the Micro Pore Optics detector to be used in X-Ray imaging applications. Its perfectly square, flat channels are optimized to allow X-Ray and UV photons to be focused or collimated due to the total external reflection at a grazing angle (<2°). Micro Pore Optics are installed on a number of international space missions.
The unique square pore plate is efficient and can be configured in radially packed or square packed channels. They can be provided with Iridium coatings to enhance the reflection and films to provide a heat shield.
Micro Pore Optics detectors provide a more robust alternative to the standard X-Ray and UV imaging products available today.
