The TRACER 5g incorporates a new detector with a 1 μm graphene window. The graphene window replaces the traditional 8 μm beryllium window.

This ground-breaking window is one of the first commercial uses for graphene, an advanced material composed of atomic layers of carbon atoms arranged in hexagonal lattices. While the graphene is extremely thin its unique structure makes it extremely strong.

The graphene window has higher transmission of X-rays throughout the energy spectrum and dramatically improves the transmission for light elements:

  • 3X sensitivity for Sodium (Na)1
  • 2X sensitivity for Magnesium (Mg)1
  • 300 ppm Detection Limit for Na with He2
  • 100 ppm Detection limit for Mg with He2
  • Detection of Fluorine (F)
