AXO DRESDEN GmbH - Applied X-ray Optics and High Precision Deposition

AXO DRESDEN GmbH - Applied X-ray Optics and High Precision Deposition - was founded as a Spin-off by employees of the Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology Dresden (IWS) with a participating share of the Fraunhofer Society.

Our production program contains both single X-ray optics and complex X-ray optical systems to generate high intensity collimated or focussed monochromatic X-ray beams, special customized depositions and applications in X-ray reflectometry and diffraction. A wide assortment of flat and curved X-ray optics are available that can be used with the common types of X-ray sources with respect to wavelength, construction and focus geometry.

AXO DRESDEN develops and applies various high precision deposition techniques for the production of nanometer single and multilayers showing sub-nanometer precision. 
In order to deliver our customers an optimum high quality solution we work in close collaboration with the Fraunhofer IWS, further Fraunhofer Institutes, the University of Technology Dresden as well as with other national and international research institutes.

Our more than 20 years of experience in the fields of high precision deposition and design, development and application of multilayer X-ray optics is applied to provide our clientele with effective and customized solutions in the fields of X-ray optics and high precision deposition.

We are looking forward to answer your questions and inquiries.

Social commitment

Social commitment is an important issue for us at AXO DRESDEN. That's why we support nonprofit charitable projects in our region.

For example, we did not send Christmas postcards but instead made a donation to Sonnenstrahl e.V., a nonprofit association from Dresden that supports children and youths having cancer and their families.
