Specific Solutions are based on DECTRIS’ standard hybrid-pixel, photon-counting technology platforms: PILATUS3 and EIGER2 pixel detectors, and MYTHEN2 strip detectors. All DECTRIS detectors operate in single-photon-counting mode and provide outstanding data quality. They feature a very high dynamic range, zero dark signal, and no readout noise. This achieves optimal signal-to-noise ratios, even for short readout times and high frame rates.
Large active areas with customer-specific geometries are made up of multiple identical modules. Any of our detector platforms can become the foundation for your Specific Solution.
