Data Collection New Eiger2 R 250K Detector to be Integrated into D8 X-Ray Diffraction Systems
Global specialist in X-ray diffraction (XRD) instrumentation, Bruker, and Dectris, supplier of Hybrid Photon Counting (HPC) detectors for laboratory instrumentation and synchrotron beam lines, introduce the Eiger2 R 250K X-ray detector.
Karlsruhe/Germany; Baden/Switzerland — The new Eiger2 R 250K with over 250,000 pixels incorporates the latest technological enhancements applied to the entire product family, such as the doubled dynamical range and the expanded threshold energy range for an even more versatile background reduction. The high frame rate common to all Eiger2 R detectors enables 2-dimensional data collection in continuous scanning mode and single photon counting without any spatial distortion.
Bruker’s holistic integration of the Eiger2 R 250K and 500K detectors into the D8 Advance and D8 Discover resulted in a powerful yet easy-to-use solution. The seamless integration into the Diffrac.Suite software architecture, the ergonomic design of the X-ray detector mount, and dedicated accessories enable fast and reliable optimization of instrument geometry and efficient data collection for many applications. Bruker’s consistent implementation on 0D, 1D, and 2D data acquisition modes and patented algorithms ensure best data quality for every sample.
Bruker’s D8 Advance and D8 Discover X-ray diffractometers equipped with the new detector are versatile tools for materials characterization covering all X-ray applications from powder diffraction (XRPD), micro diffraction (μXRD), texture or residual stress analysis, crystallite size determination, thin film analysis by X-ray reflectometry (XRR) and high-resolution diffraction (HRXRD) to small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS).
