EIGER2 R Detectors for Laboratory

EIGER2 R combines all state-of-the art features of HPC technology in DECTRIS' most advanced detector series for laboratory applications. Dual energy discrimination allows for extensive background suppression and improves signal-to-noise in particular for weak signals and long exposure times. Superior count rate performance enables accurate measurements of highest intensities. Take full advantage of the detector series' vast dynamic range even during long exposures using simultaneous read/write with zero dead time.

Thanks to the optional vacuum compatibility, absorption and scatter from air and windows can be minimized. Small pixels in combination with direct detection achieve high spatial and angular resolution and give you the benefit of fine sampling and wide coverage of reciprocal space. Choose from three different models to match your needs.
