Based on Hybrid Photon Counting (HPC) technology, the MYTHEN2 series incorporates all of the renowned MYTHEN chip’s benefits in a package that fits your needs.

We have optimized the versatile MYTHEN2 R laboratory series for a broad range of applications: from residual stress to PDF measurements. The MYTHEN2 X synchrotron series is the optimal choice for scientists looking for ultimate speed, without compromises in data quality or system flexibility.

MYTHEN2 detectors guarantee noise-free performance, maximum resolution, and outstanding signal-to-noise ratios for an extended energy range from 4 to 40 keV. These systems include two module sizes: 1K with 1280 strips, and 1D with 640 strips. Their compact size, symmetrical sensor position, and DCS4 control unit make the MYTHEN2 series suitable for any diffractometer geometry — from portable instruments to large systems.

The MYTHEN microstrip detector has earned excellent reviews from researchers and scientists.


MYTHEN2 X for Synchrotron

MYTHEN2 X for Synchrotron
The MYTHEN2 X series guarantees the highest time-resolution for all X-ray synchrotron applications. A frame rate of 1000 Hz is readily achievable even with multi-modular systems operated at 24-bit dynamic range. Combined with a supreme signal-to- noise ratio for X-ray energies ranging from 4 to 40 keV, these features bring new levels of performance for time-resolved and in situ studies. Read more

MYTHEN2 R for Laboratory

MYTHEN2 R for Laboratory
The MYTHEN2 R series fully adapts HPC technology to all laboratory and industrial requirements. The 50 μm strip width is combined with fast data acquisition and supreme signal-to- noise ratio for energies ranging from Ti to Ag radiation. Compact design, modular detector concept, radiation hardness, and the new DCS4 control unit make MYTHEN2 detectors suitable for any diffractometer geometry. Read more
