High dynamic range

A counter depth of 20 bits (~ 1 million counts) combined with the absence of detector noise ensures unprecedented contrast and dynamic range, another hallmark of all PILATUS3 detectors, leading to excellent image and data quality (Fig. 2). Extremely strong and weak signals can be accurately detected on a single image. [Y. Sonntag et al., Nature communications | 2:304 | DOI: 10.1038/ncomms1307]
