Hybrid Photon Counting detectors for laboratory and industry

DECTRIS Hybrid Photon Counting detectors have transformend X-ray data acquisition at synchrotrons. Different detector series specifically developed for the requirements of laboratory and industry applications take advantage of DECTRIS’ synchrotron proven technology, while fitting laboratory budgets. Benefit from direct detection with minimal point spread and single-photon counting without any readout noise and dark current in your laboratory.


The EIGER R series features DECTRIS’ latest generation of Hybrid Photon Counting detectors for the laboratory. They combine renowned single-photon sensitivity with a pixel size of only 75 µm. Based on synchrotron proven technology, the EIGER R series offers the perfect match for all of your laboratory detector requirements.
