Bruker AXS and DECTRIS Ltd. have announced an agreement for the supply of Hybrid Photon Counting (HPC) pixel detectors for Bruker’s X-ray diffraction (XRD) business.
“We have chosen DECTRIS as a supplier because of its high-performance, reliable, and proven HPC detector technology and high-volume production capacity”, says Frank Burgaezy, President of Bruker AXS. “The combination of our world-class technologies will benefit customers in a wide range of demanding applications such as micro-high-resolution diffraction (HRXRD), grazing incidence small angle X-ray scattering (GISAXS) and kinetic studies.”
“DECTRIS is pleased to supply state-of-the-art HPC detectors to Bruker, a global leader in X-ray technology with a long tradition of innovation”, states Christian Broennimann, CEO of DECTRIS. “We are excited by the performance of our noise-free PILATUS3 detector combined with the cutting-edge D8 DISCOVER diffraction solutions.”
The PILATUS3 R 100K-A 2D X-ray detector for the D8 DISCOVER diffraction solutions was announced at the Japan Analytical & Scientific Instrument Show 2015 (JASIS).
