The PILATUS3 R 100K-M offers a separate compact and lightweight detector head, which can also be operated in vacuum and without its entrance window.

In addition, the 100K-M offers all the features of the PILATUS3 hybrid photon counting detectors, such as noise-free detection and optimal point spread function, making it an ideal choice for, e.g., a WAXS detector in a SAXS/WAXS setup.

The water-cooled detector head is optionally also vacuum-compatible down to 10-6 mbar. This option comes with a removable entrance window, which minimizes scatter and absorption at low X-ray energies in vacuum. For extremely soft X-ray applications, optional low energy calibrations are available allowing detection down to an energy threshold of 1.6 keV.  Electrical and cooling feedthrough sets are available as accessories and make integratio of the 100K-M into your vacuum chamber easy.
