New EIGER2 R 250K XRD Detector for Bruker XRD
The EIGER2 R 250K is an HPC (Hybrid Photon Counting) pixel detector by DECTRIS for the Bruker D8 ADVANCE and DISCOVER XRD systems.
EIGER2 R 250K Detector for Bruker XRD
The EIGER2 R 250K X-ray detector is the latest member in the EIGER2 R series of HPC (Hybrid Photon Counting) pixel detectors, joining the larger EIGER2 R 500K.
The new detector was developed by DECTRIS, the technology leader for HPC detectors. It has a large square sensor with over 250,000 pixels, together with all the benefits of the EIGER2 range.
EIGER2 R Series Features
The new detector features the latest technological enhancements of the EIGER2 R family:
- Doubled dynamical range.
- Expanded threshold energy range for versatile background reduction.
- Very high frame rate:
- 2D data collection in continuous scanning mode.
- Single photon counting without spatial distortion.
The new detector integrates seamlessly into Bruker’s DIFFRAC.SUITE software. The ergonomic design of the X-ray detector mount and dedicated accessories enable fast and reliable instrument geometry optimisation and efficient data collection. This ensures the best quality data for every sample, using 0D, 1D, and 2D data acquisition modes and patented algorithms.
Bruker’s D8 X-ray diffractometers are extremely versatile tools for materials characterisation for all X-ray applications including:
- Powder diffraction (XRPD)
- Micro diffraction (μXRD)
- Texture and residual stress analysis
- Crystallite size determination
- Thin film analysis by X-ray reflectometry (XRR)
- High-resolution diffraction (HRXRD)
- Small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS)
