The PILATUS3 R CdTe 100K-M brings the advantages of HPC technology and direct detection in CdTe to high-energy applications in the laboratory. The system with an active area of
83.8 x 33.5 mm2 outclasses many other detectors for laboratory XRD with hard radiation. Capture more of your precious photons from Mo, Ag, or In sources and detect them with greater than 90% quantum efficiency. When speed and data-collection efficiency matters for you in PDF, in-situ, or in-operando measurements, the PILATUS3 R CdTe 100K-M is the best choice for you.

In addition, the 100K-M offers all the features of the PILATUS3 X CdTe hybrid photon counting detectors, such as noise-free detection for highest dynamic range and optimal point spread function.

Furthermore, you can exploit the optional vacuum compatibility (down to 10-6 mbar) of the detector for complete elimination of air scatter and absorption. Electrical and cooling feedthrough sets are available as accessories and make integration of the 100K-M into your vacuum chamber easy.
