Rigaku Innovative Technologies


Rigaku Innovative Technologies (RIT), manufacturer of Osmic® Optics, is the components division of Rigaku Corporation. RIT is a global supplier of high performance multilayer optics used in commercial and academic institutions and government research facilities. RIT has sold over 40,000 multilayers worldwide all of which have been integrated into most major brands of Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Spectrometers, X-ray Diffractometers, X-ray Crystallography and SAXS/WAXS analytical instruments or in use on a synchrotron beamline or in some other experimental apparatus.

RIT has established long term, strategic, domestic and international partnerships with many labs including NIST, the CXRO at Lawrence Berkeley Labs, the PTB in Berlin, and New Subaru in Japan.

RIT manufactures the most widely used brand of multilayers and X-ray source systems in the world for hard and soft X-ray analysis of liquid, powder or solid samples.

Major types of analysis are:

  • X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) to determine the amounts of or types of elemental compounds within a given sample
  • X-ray Diffraction (XRD) to determine the atomic structure within a given sample
  • X-ray Crystallography (XC) for determining atomic structure of a crystal or macromolecule
  • Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) for studying materials with long-range order such as polymers, nanoparticles in solution, proteins in solution and so on.

Services Include

  • Multilayer coatings for various custom applications
  • Advanced coatings services for many types of sputtered films
  • High precision Johansson Monochromator Crystals
  • X-ray sources and systems
  • Extreme Ultra Violet Lithography (EUVL) collectors, illumination, imaging and metrology optics
  • Extreme Ultra Violet or EUV-XUL for precision diffractive optics for multidisciplinary studies and astronomical research

Suite of Products Include

  • Spectroscopy Analyzers
  • Diffraction monochromators and analyzers
  • Point-to-point focusing optics
  • Point-to-line focusing optics
  • Collimating optics
  • Area-to-point focusing optics
  • Multilayers as double multilayer monochromator (DMM) sets, offering high flux and a broad range of energy selectivity
