McPherson, Inc. designs and manufactures beam line monochromators and ancillary components. Consider us for monochromators, UHV chambers, slits, analytical and diagnostic spectrometers, beam transport pipes, mirror manipulators and precision positioning systems. We provide mechanical and optical ray trace and instrumentation design, manufacturing, assembly, test, and training. See a few recent installations here.
Call 1-978-256-4512 or email for additional information about beam line components, monochromator systems or to discuss your requirement.
Monochromators for synchrotron beamlines: If you need a beamline monochromator that is not on our list please call or email. If you need a monchromator for your experimental end-station, please see our complete list of monochromators
McPherson, Inc. manufactures a variety of grating monochromators suitable for ultra high vacuum synchrotron beamline installations. We ray trace, design, fabricate, test and install these systems. McPherson high performance UHV systems for soft x-ray and extreme ultraviolet applications work through the 5eV to 2keV energy range (depending on monochromator design and gratings.) McPherson systems can be supplied with 2, 3, 4 or more gratings. Dispersion can be horizontal or vertical. Monochromators include a UHV chamber, viewports, grating mechanism, high accuracy scan mechanism, grating holder with in vacuum coarse and fine adjustment of pitch, roll and yaw, and a support structure that separates the precision grating motions from the vacuum enclosure to help isolate from environmental vibration and thermal fluctuations.
