DECTRIS EIGER2® photon-counting X-ray detectors are used by leading synchrotrons and the most advanced scientific instrument manufacturers around the world. They help make tomorrow’s discoveries today.
These detectors’ unprecedented photon-counting capabilities, combined with two independent energy thresholds and a maximum count rate of 107 ph/s/pixel, let you collect more relevant and accurate data in less time. Thanks to their sharp, single-pixel point-spread function, they also deliver the ideal spatial resolution, ensuring independent counting of neighboring pixels.
EIGER2 detectors are reliable and durable, even more so thanks to the user and system support that you’ve come to expect from DECTRIS. This makes them a future-proof tool for any institution or laboratory that is looking to improve its output and efficiency.
- Accurate: our EIGER2 detectors offer high resolution, from the lowest flux valleys to the highest data peaks.
- Manifold: our detectors come in a variety of geometries and configurations to fit every setup.
- Reliable: we offer continuous support during integration, and also throughout the product’s life cycle.
Hybrid-pixel technology enables us to create detectors that are free of readout noise and dark current, and single-photon counting allows each pixel to detect individual photons and compare their energy to a discrimination threshold. Hence, hybrid-pixel detectors can selectively recognize and suppress unwanted sample fluorescence, and even (when using a second threshold) cosmic background radiation, giving you higher-quality images. DECTRIS’ photon-counting detectors are specifically designed and optimized for this noise-free direct detection of X-rays.
