Chiba, Japan, 2015/09/02 - At the Japan Analytical & Scientific Instrument Show 2015 (JASIS), BRUKER AXS announced the PILATUS3 R 100K-A 2D X-ray detector for its D8 DISCOVER diffraction solutions - Bruker.com. NASDAQ: BRKR
The PILATUS3 R is a new Hybrid Photon Counting (HPC) pixel detector developed by the Swiss company DECTRIS, the technology leader for HPC detectors. In close collaboration, BRUKER AXS and DECTRIS have seamlessly integrated this powerful new detector into the D8 DISCOVER to enable full usability for various X-ray diffraction applications.
The PILATUS3 R 100K-A significantly extends the capabilities of the D8 DISCOVER for various types of diffraction experiments. The HPC pixel detector offers a unique combination of superb performance features: no dark current and read out noise, an excellent point spread function, and highest available frame rates, count rates and dynamical range. These unmatched capabilities allow the HPC detector to produce excellent diffraction data in a broad range of applications, especially in those experiments where 2theta and gamma coverage is essential, including micro diffraction, texture, residual stress, grain size, GISAXS, micro-HRXRD and kinetic studies.
The addition of the HPC pixel detector completes Bruker AXS' cutting edge X-Ray detector portfolio which features the 1D LYNXEYE™ silicon strip detectors with unrivalled energy resolution, the high speed, shutterless PHOTON 100 CMOS APS detector for single crystal diffraction, and the large active area, noise-free VÅNTEC MikroGap™ detector.
