Everything and the kitchen sink: Correcting X-ray data for everything

No matter whether you are doing X-ray diffraction or scattering, at wide or small angles, in a lab or at a synchrotron, you will need a bespoke sequence of up to twenty different corrections before it gets about right (at our latest count). Our library now does this automatically and reliably to get you the data you deserve – in absolute units and with uncertainty estimates – without the pain. This talk will highlight the development of the modular library, the sequence and its foundation, show its applicability to real-world datasets, and highlight a possible way forward.

How transmission electron microscope becomes electron diffractometer: MicroED with EIGER

Dr. Tim Grüne researches X-ray and electron crystallography at the Swiss Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI). His role is to investigate how electron nanocrystallography could be used efficiently to clarify the spatial structure of small molecules with great impact in the Pharma industry. In this webinar, Dr. Grüne describes how he used the EIGER X 1M to turn a standard transmission electron microscope (TEM) into an efficient electron diffractometer. Dr. Grüne discusses the Micro Electron Diffraction (MicroED) workflow from set-up to collecting and processing data.

EIGER2 X CdTe: The high resolution solution for high energies

What if you could efficiently detect photons with energies of up to 100 keV, with 75 µm single-pixel spatial resolution and kilohertz frame rates? With EIGER2 X CdTe you can!

DECTRIS introduced the EIGER2 X CdTe series at the 13th International Conference on Synchrotron Radiation Instrumentation in June 2018. These new detectors are for scientists who need the highest resolution and frame rates at high energies. In this webinar, Stefan Brandstetter and Clemens Schulze-Briese will summarize the detectors' advantages and show first results obtained at ESRF.

Hybrid Photon Counting: A key for acquiring optimal SAXS data sets

Small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) has become one of the most versatile techniques for nanostructure analysis. The quality of the data provided by SAXS experiments has vastly improved thanks to advances in all key components, namely the source, the optics and the detector.

This webinar reviews the needs of SAXS in terms of X-ray detection. After introducing Hybrid Photon Counting (HPC) technology, you will learn how it enables the acquisition of optimal SAXS data. Key factors such as noise, stability, dynamic range, resolution and sensitive area will be discussed in the context of SAXS-WAXS applications.
