The EIGER2 X CdTe 4M system provides optimal efficiency for high-energy applications. Any experiment using energies above 20 keV will benefit from the great stopping power of the cadmium-telluride sensor. This X-ray detector is optimally suited for any diffraction technique: e.g. powder diffraction, SAXS, or high-pressure experiments. The external trigger input with a programmable delay function makes synchronization between the detector and other hardware extremely easy to achieve. Light and compact, this detector will fit perfectly into any experimental set-up.
