The PILATUS3 X 300K CdTe system provides optimal efficiency for high-energy applications. Any experiment above 20keV will benefit from the great stopping power of the CdTe sensor. This detector is optimally suited for any diffraction technique, as e.g. powder diffraction. SAXS or high pressure experiments.
Exposure times can be varied from a few nanoseconds to several hours and are controlled either internally or by applying an external gate signal. The external trigger input with a programmable delay function makes synchronization between the detector and other hardware extremely flexible. Furthermore, you can exploit the optional vacuum compatibility of the detector for complete elimination of air and window scattering.
