With an active area that is over 300 mm wide, the EIGER2 X CdTe 2M-W allows you to record a large q-range of scattering and diffraction patterns in a single shot. The combination of detector's active area, its frame rate of up to 1,000 Hz and its excellent gating capabilities, makes this X-ray camera perfectly suited for in situ time-resolved experiments. Two million pixels with a point-spread function of one 75 µm pixel ensure high-resolution data, but also a good sampling of points for the azimuthal integration of the powder diffraction patterns or Pair Distribution Function (PDF) analysis. The cadmium-telluride sensor provides excellent sensitivity to high-energy X-rays. This sensor, combined with the fast-counting pixels featuring DECTRIS’ Instant Retrigger technology, will allow you to take full advantage of the high-photon flux offered by modern synchrotron beamlines.
