We enable X-Ray Science.

Unleash Performance

We provide adaptive, minimally invasive and flexible  solutions for tailoring properties of synchrotron radiation to the specific needs of the experiment.


WaveGate enables tailoring of the temporal synchrotron pulse structure on a broad timescale ranging from few hundred nanoseconds to seconds.


The PicoSwitch is a photo-acoustic Bragg switch capable of shortening the x-ray pulse duration to 5-10 ps. The device works best at higher repetition rates due to the limited diffraction efficiency. However, measurement of coherent lattice dynamics in thin film hetero-structures was demonstrated already at a repetition rate of 1 kHz.

Inside TXProducts

Peter Gaal

CEO - R&D - Sales

Peter has a PhD in experimental physics with a strong background in structural dynamics and solid-state physics. As researcher, university lecturer and entrepreneur he is pushing the development of active x-ray optics.

Together we strive for excellence in science.

We measure our products against the high standards of beamline components.

Daniel Schmidt

CEO - Tech - Finance

Daniel holds a master’s degree in nanoscience and specialized in time resolved synchrotron and laser applications. Together with Peter he is founder of TXP and pushes active x-ray optics from prototyping to market readiness.

Current Development Projects


The NanoGate pulse picker employs laser-generated thermal transient gratings to isolate single x-ray pulses from a continuous incident pulse train. We aim to develop this method for a broad energy range (50 eV – 20 keV) and for large energy bandwidth (e.g. undulator pink beams).

Customized solutions for advanced synchrotron experiments.
