OLD-PILATUS3 X CdTe 2M

The PILATUS3 X 2M CdTe detector is the ultimate detector for the high-energy community. With a surface area of 25 x 28 cm2 it is the largest commercially available high-energy photon-counting system optimally suited for diffraction of strong absorbing materials and diamond anvil cell (DAC) experiments. The PILATUS3 X 2M CdTe detector is the first large area, single-photon counting detector offering highly efficient detection up to 100 keV. It makes the unique properties of the PILATUS3 detector technology available for hard X-ray applications without any compromise. DECTRIS instant retrigger technology and thorough product development enable a breakthrough in count rate capability and stability for CdTe detectors, with less than 1% signal variation at 2.5 × 106 photons/s/pixel over a period of several hours.
