EIGER2 S Series
DECTRIS EIGER2® S photon-counting X-ray detectors are the perfect choice if your research requires large-area, high-resolution beamline detectors, but not the ultimate speed. Like all EIGER2 detectors, this camera with 75-µm pixels delivers data with the highest spatial resolution. It includes two independent energy thresholds for spectral sensitivity, a single-pixel point-spread function for ideal counting statistics, and fast image readout with a frame rate up to 1 kHz. Equipped with a silicon sensor that is 450 µm thick, EIGER2 S detectors cover X-ray energies between 6 and 40 keV. EIGER2 S detectors come in a variety of sizes. Their robustness, combined with excellent support, make EIGER2 S detectors the most reliable and future-proof tool for cost-conscious beamlines.
EIGER2 R Series
DECTRIS EIGER2® R X-ray detectors for laboratory applications incorporate all the state-of-the art features of hybrid-pixel technology. The two energy-discriminating thresholds allow for extensive background suppression and improve the signal-to-noise ratio, in particular for weak signals and long exposure times. The detectors’ superior count-rate performance, high dynamic range, and simultaneous read/write with zero dead time enable accurate measurements of even the highest intensities. Thanks to the detectors’ optional vacuum compatibility, absorption and scattering from air and windows can be minimized. 75-µm pixels, in combination with direct detection, achieve high spatial and angular resolution and give you the benefit of fine sampling with wide coverage of reciprocal space. DECTRIS EIGER2® R’s many geometries and room-temperature operation, with dedicated support from us, make it an easy-to-integrate and easy-to-operate X-ray detector for any analytical instrument.
EIGER2 R CdTe Series
The cadmium-telluride sensor of DECTRIS EIGER2® R CdTe X-ray detectors offers a higher quantum efficiency for molybdenum (Mo), silver (Ag), and indium (In) compared to these detectors’ silicon-sensor counterparts, while closely matching silicon detectors’ high efficiency for copper (Cu) radiation. The series’ unprecedentedly high count-rate capability, which is enabled by DECTRIS’ patented Instant Retrigger, allows for more accurate measurements of even the highest intensities that can be achieved with laboratory sources. Equipped with two energy-discriminating thresholds, these detectors have low dark counts from environmental background. This significantly improves the signal-to-noise ratio for weak signals and long exposures, allowing for shorter measurement times and better data quality. Single-photon counting, in combination with continuous read/write, overcome all saturation issues and the limited dynamic range of integrating detectors. In addition, direct detection and the small, 75-µm pixel size guarantee high spatial and angular resolution. Coming in five different sizes, which include wide geometries, and with optional vacuum compatibility, EIGER2 R CdTe detectors can fulfill the requirements of almost any high-energy experimental setup you can think of.
MYTHEN2 X Series
DECTRIS® MYTHEN2 strip detectors have transformed high-resolution X-ray diffraction, scattering, and spectroscopy measurements by giving them another dimension: time. Renowned for its narrow strip and sharp point-spread function, MYTHEN2 X introduces a 1,000-Hz frame rate with a 24-bit dynamic range for any number of modules. This opens up new domains of time-resolved and in situ studies. The Detector Control System 4 (DCS4), with electronic gating and an external trigger, allows for tailor-made multimodular solutions and full synchronization of the detector with other systems. The time dimension, however, does not compromise data quality or system flexibility: we guarantee noise-free detection even for long exposure times. Additionally, the modules’ optional vacuum compatibility opens up new possibilities for X-ray spectroscopy applications.
MYTHEN2 R Series
DECTRIS® MYTHEN2 strip detectors bring synchrotron-like detection to the lab for all X-ray diffraction, scattering, and spectroscopy techniques. Their radiation hardness and maintenance-free operation make these detectors the perfect choice for academic research, multi-purpose service laboratories, portable diffractometers, and industrial sites that employ Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) rules. MYTHEN2 R offers the narrowest strip width (50 μm) on the market, providing unprecedented signal resolution. Single-photon counting eliminates dark current and readout noise while delivering superior data. MYTHEN2 R detectors also combine noise-free performance with high quantum efficiency for the widest X-ray energy range: from Ti to Ag. This unique combination of features will help you make the most of weak laboratory sources by maximizing the signal-to-noise ratio and minimizing measurement and data processing times.
