DIRECT DETECTION OF HARD X-RAYS IN LARGE-AREA CdTe SENSORS

PILATUS3 CdTe detectors combine the unique advantages of Hybrid Photon Counting (HPC) technology with the excellent high-energy detection capability of cadmium telluride (CdTe) sensor material. The PILATUS3 X CdTe series meets the performance requirements of hard X-ray synchrotron beamlines while the PILATUS3 R CdTe detectors are tailored to the needs in the laboratory. The entire set of features that enables best possible data quality is common to all PILATUS3 detectors: DECTRIS Instant Retrigger Technology® for unsurpassed count rates and improved count rate correction; absence of readout noise and dark current; direct detection of X-rays in CdTe sensors for a minimal and sharp point-spread function and high quantum efficiency. The PILATUS3 R and X CdTe detector series provide the largest pixel detectors for direct detection of hard X-rays.

PILATUS3 R CdTe

Challenging laboratory applications such as charge density studies and pair distribution function analysis rely on hard radiation and have the highest requirements for sensitivity and accuracy. The PILATUS3 R CdTe detectors series offers a unique combination of high-efficiency direct detection in a large-area CdTe sensor with noise-free single-photon counting and is the best match for these requirements in the laboratory.
