MetalJet, the world’s brightest microfocus X-ray tube

The MetalJet technology replaces the traditional solid anode of X-ray tube with a jet of liquid metal.
Thereby, the achievable power-level is no longer limited by when the anode melts.
It’s already molten!

The MetalJet X-ray source can then be integrated into one of our partners’ systems or constitute the base of a custom set-up solution.

Our Story

It started already in year 2000 with the invention of the liquid-metal-jet-anode principle by Prof. Hans Hertz and Ph.D. student Oscar Hemberg. The technology was then further refined by Ph.D. students Mikael Otendal and Tomi Tuohimaa. At that time the four founders-to-be were affiliated with KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.
