CHESS has a unique drawing tower facility to fabricate glass capillaries that can be used in a variety of settings to focus or prefocus x-ray beams down to micron-level sizes. Due to the demand for longer and larger inner and outer diameter capillaries, a new requirement is the need to measure outer diameters greater than 6 mm. Example projects include requests by the APS transmission x-ray microscope project, Cornell’s X-ray emission spectrometer project and the FDA laser funnel application. To accommodate these requests, a newly purchase Keyence sensor head with monitor, Model LS-7030M will be soon commissioned. It expands our capabilities to profile large outer diameter capillaries up to 30 mm.
