MOXTEK™, Inc. was founded in 1986 with a technology jointly developed with Brigham Young University. MOXTEK has developed a strong presence in the x-ray and optical component markets through a combination of technology excellence and superior customer service.
MOXTEK manufactures several analytical x-ray components including: ultra-thin films, specialty coatings, ultra-low noise electronics, miniature x-ray sources, and Si-PIN x-ray detectors.
MOXTEK is also extremely skilled in the technology and manufacture of specialized optical products. In 2002, MOXTEK introduced the ProFlux™ polarizer. This polarizer exhibits superior performance in high flux projection systems such as those used in business projectors and rear projection HDTV televisions. The ProFlux™ polarizer was awarded the 2002 Silver Award by the Society for Information Display (SID) in recognition of its outstanding contribution. The ProFlux™ polarizer and more recent beam splitter components have achieved wide acceptance in the market. MOXTEK expects the ProFlux polarizer to achieve significant sales revenue in the coming years.
