The PILATUS3 R 100K-A delivers all advantages of Hybrid Photon Counting technology in an easy-to-use, service- and maintenance-free detector system and is DECTRIS’ most affordable 2D detector. A continuous active area of 84 by 34 millimeters allows for fast and accurate measurements of XRD data. Like all its PILATUS3 R siblings, the 100K-A outperforms other counting detectors with a maximum count rate of more than 4 million counts per second and pixel at 8 keV. This ensures accurate data even when measuring strongly diffracting samples with the brightest sources. The radiation-hard design of PILATUS3 has proven its robustness at many synchrotron beamlines and can easily withstand the radiation exposure in laboratory instruments, providing a highly reliable detector. Air-cooled and fully media-free, the PILATUS3 R 100K-A is the easiest-to-operate PILATUS detector yet.
