DECTRIS PILATUS3® detectors are specifically designed to achieve exceptional data quality for laboratory X-ray applications. They bring two key technologies — single-photon counting and hybrid-pixel technology — from the synchrotron to the laboratory.

PILATUS3 technology enables direct X-ray detection and results in sharper and better-resolved signals than is possible with scintillator-based detectors. With short readout times and continuous acquisition, PILATUS3 R detectors deliver outstanding data with high efficiency. Additionally, low power and cooling requirements will give you a hassle-free detector system that calls for minimal maintenance.

  • Fast & precise: these detectors offer single-photon counting, with a count rate up to 107 ph/s/pixel and accurate data collection.

  • Versatile: our detectors come in many sizes and geometries, with different sensor materials and optional vacuum compatibility.
  • Reliable: these detectors feature stable performance, with no complex cooling procedures. Delivery terms are guaranteed, thanks to streamlined industrial production and top-notch support.



These are noise-free, easy-to-integrate X-ray detectors for your in-house diffractometer. 


These X-ray detectors combine the advantages of noise-free single-photon counting with direct detection of hard X-rays in large cadmium-telluride (CdTe) sensors.
