Dectris Launches X-Ray Detectors for OEM use in Laboratory Diffractometers.

M2 PHARMA-February 26, 2015-Dectris Launches X-Ray Detectors for OEM use in Laboratory Diffractometers


Swiss X-ray detection systems provider Dectris Ltd. has launched a new generation of its Mythen2 R high-performance microstrip X-ray detectors for OEM use in laboratory and portable diffractometers, the company said on Thursday.

According to the company, the new Mythen2 R series feature full-range Ti to Ag detection, supreme signal-to-noise ratios, a new control system, the ability to be combined into larger systems, and new compact size, making the series suitable for any diffractometer geometry from portable instruments to large multi-modular systems.

The systems feature two compact, symmetrical module designs for easy integration in various diffractometers, including the 1280 strip module for laboratory diffractometers, and the 640 strip module (featuring media-free operation) for portable diffractometers and robots for stress measurements.

They feature wide angular coverage, supported by the new Detector Control System, which allows for the simultaneous operation of up to four modules. The coverage is achieved with a gap of only 6mm between the sensitive areas of the modules.

Dectris added that the systems feature the world's smallest strip width, at 50 microns, with availability in three thicknesses (320, 450, and 1000microns) and two lengths (4mm and 8mm).

The systems are also designed for optimal signal-to-noise ratios at low X-ray energies (Ti- and Cr- radiation) in the new 4mm strip length. Coupled with the supreme readout time, it enables measurements using Ti-radiation and paves the way for in situ residual stress analysis.
