GIF Quantum K2
Direct detection camera for energy-filtered imaging and spectroscopy
The Gatan GIF Quantum K2 is a fast, counting mode direct detection camera for both energy-filtered imaging and spectroscopy. Study the compositional and chemical properties of materials.
The post-column energy filter/spectrometer gives you a unique combination of both counting and analogue detection technology.
- Counting mode: The counting capabilities of the K2 camera give you the highest detective quantum efficiency (DQE) available for low-dose imaging, spectroscopy and spectrum imaging.
- Analogue mode: Traditional CCD-based analogue detection mode for high-dynamic range imaging and spectroscopy.
GIF Quantum IS
There is also another model available: the GIF Quantum IS, with elucidating contrast modes for in-situ experiments. This combines unmatched, sub-millisecond temporal resolution imaging with energy filtered imaging. Choose this model for in-situ experiments such as zero-loss filtered, most probable loss and plasmon shift images.
- Unparalleled elemental detection
Spectroscopy results are near-zero noise. This makes it possible to perform detailed Energy Loss Near Edge Structure analysis (ELNES) and detect trace elements.
- Sharper spectra
The narrow point spread function reduces tails on the zero-loss peak. There’s less blurring on fine structures, for sharper data across a wider energy range.
- Improved contrast
Detect small, low-contrast objects by combining the K2 camera’s superior DQE with zero-loss filtering.
- Capture high-speed in-situ events (GIF Quantum K2 IS only)
Sub-millisecond temporal resolution for high-speed reactions, at up to 1600 frames per second (sub-area). You can save individual frames as images at full detector speed and resolution.
