The PILATUS3 R CdTe 300K-W features a 254 mm wide and 34 mm high active area for scanning of wide objects in imaging or non-destructive testing. The CdTe sensor offers higher than 80% quantum efficiency at X-ray energies up to 80 keV and is well suited for even higher energies. Thanks to direct detection, much sharper images can be achieved than with scintillator-based detectors and noise-free single-photon counting minimizes background.
