Public Profile

With their products integrated into a range of NASA and the important projects of a range of other clients, LUXEL is about precision in research and spaceflight. From its founding in 1973, Luxel has been on the leading edge of the development of new filter materials and techniques for fabricating filters. The firm can produce filters and windows larger and stronger than previously thought possible. Many of their new filter materials provide researchers with the ability to better discriminate regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. Their filters demonstrate remarkable strength for their size and are sufficient to withstand spacecraft launch, pressure differentials, and maintain gas cell integrity. They deliver the highest quality foils available, produced from over seventy different metals, compounds, and organics, and are supplied on both standard and custom frames. Luxel manufactures ultrathin foils for use as EUV and soft x-ray filters, x-ray laser targets, photocathodes, custom filters, windows and vacuum deposition furnaces/evaporators. The firm has pioneered the development of new filter materials and techniques for fabricating filters.
