PILATUS3 R CdTe for Laboratories

PILATUS3 R CdTe X-ray detectors combine the advantages of single-photon counting with noise-free direct detection of hard X-rays.

Thanks to their cadmium-telluride sensor, DECTRIS PILATUS3® R CdTe X-ray detectors are ideal for high-energy laboratory applications that require large-area detection. Direct detection in a hybrid-pixel detector results in sharper signals and better spatial resolution than is possible with scintillator-based detectors. CdTe X-ray detectors also provide more than 95% efficiency for Mo, Ag, and In radiation. Combined with noise-free, single-photon counting, these capabilities permit PILATUS3 R CdTe cameras to achieve new levels of sensitivity and accuracy in the laboratory.

Laboratory X-ray sources, particularly for hard X-rays, are much weaker than sources at a synchrotron, and longer exposure times are required. Thanks to the absence of dark current and readout noise, PILATUS3 R detectors outperform other technologies in this regard. Single-photon counting is also free of other sources of noise and inaccuracy that are intrinsic to charge-integrating CMOS detectors.

  • Sensitive: these detectors provide more than 95% efficiency for Mo, Ag, and In radiation.
  • Accurate: the detectors offer noise-free detection, even for long exposure times.
  • Reliable: detector performance is always stable. Delivery terms are guaranteed, thanks to streamlined industrial production and top-notch support.
