PANalytical's 2nd generation
solid-state detection technology, is a highly
advanced photon counting device incorporating
the latest in solid-state pixel technology.
PIXcel provides specific benefits for research into advanced materials for high tech applications such as superior resolution, unmatched dynamic range, high count rate linearity and wide application versatility.
PIXcel consists of more than 65,000 pixels, each 55 x 55 microns in size and with individual readout circuitry - step size 0.0167 º2q
This results in new levels of resolution and linearity and an unmatched dynamic range of 25 million counts per second per pixel row. Thanks to this unique performance capability the use of beam attenuators is no longer required.
