The EIGER2 R CdTe 4M is the ultimate X-ray detector for efficient data collection in high-energy laboratory applications. With its active area of 155 x 162 mm2, it is the largest commercially available laboratory detector with a cadmium-telluride sensor. Its high quantum efficiency for Cu, Mo, Ag, and In radiation, in combination with its large active area, makes the EIGER2 R CdTe 4M detector unrivaled, particularly for high-energy or dual-wavelength Single-Crystal Diffraction (SCD) and SAXS/WAXS.
