High local and global count rates

All PILATUS3 detectors feature DECTRIS instant retrigger technology, which enables each pixel of a PILATUS3 to accurately detect up to ten million photons per second Furthermore, no global count rate limit is detected up to 6 × 106 photons per second and pixel. This enables global count rates of more than 2 × 108 photons per second and square millimeter. Both local and global count rates of PILATUS detectors are far superior to those of counting detectors based on gas discharge or similar technologies.
