DECTRIS’ HPC-detectors feature large active areas. This makes them ideal for collecting data over an energy range of several keV without moving the detector or the analyzer crystals [1, 2]. This movement-free data collection increases the speed and improves data quality. Small strip (pixel) size allows for the premium energy resolution, down to 2 eV .
Zero readout noise and noise-free photon-counting enable long exposure times without increasing the background signal. This opens up a path to high-resolution EXAFS and XANES measurements in the laboratory [2, 3].
