OLD-EIGER2 R CdTe for Laboratory

The latest developments in Hybrid-Photon-Counting (HPC) technology, coupled with the high quantum efficiency of cadmium-telluride sensors make EIGER2 R CdTe X-ray detectors indispensable for your laboratory. Their unprecedentedly high count-rate capability, enabled by DECTRIS’ patented Instant Retrigger, allows for more accurate measurements of the highest intensities that can be achieved with laboratory sources. Equipped with two energy-discriminating thresholds, these detectors have lower dark counts from environmental background than their predecessors did. 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, overcomes 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.

EIGER2 R CdTe sensors offer a higher quantum efficiency for molybdenum (Mo), silver (Ag), and indium (In) compared to their silicon-sensor counterparts, while closely matching the high efficiency for copper (Cu) radiation. Thus, these detectors are the perfect fit for any high-energy experiment in Single-Crystal Diffraction (SCD), X-ray Powder Diffraction (XRPD), Small-Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS), and other applications. Coming in five different sizes, including wide geometries, and with optional vacuum compatibility, they fulfill the requirements of almost any experimental setup you can think of. All models come with a CE certificate and feature easy integration and low maintenance.
