X-Ray Thin Metal Foils

We are offering a series of ultra-thin 3d metal foils as standards for EXAFS and XANES measurement. Each foil is about 5 microns thick (to give about 1.5 absorption lengths above the K-edge) and is mounted in electroplated aluminium frames, 2.6 cm by 4.6 cm in size. The foil area in frame is 0.8 cm by 2.6 cm. Reference spectra are furnished with each foil or set free of charge.
