DECTRIS offers several X-ray sensors for the PILATUS3 and MYTHEN2 detector families that achieve optimal performance over a wide range of X-ray energies. In addition to the standard 450 µm silicon sensors, which cover a broad X-ray energy range, DECTRIS offers 1000 µm-thick silicon sensors for PILATUS3 and MYTHEN. See a comparison of the available silicon sensors.
The PILATUS3 X CdTe detector series offers cadmium telluride sensors that increase the energy range up to 100 keV. See the details of the CdTe sensors.
DECTRIS recommends selecting the sensor and its thickness depending on the typical X-ray energy range of the application. For applications at X-ray energies below 12.5 keV, DECTRIS recommends the 450 µm (standard) silicon sensor.
If you are unsure about the appropriate X-ray sensor for your application, please contact DECTRIS. We will be glad to assist you in your selection.
