SC-XRD Detectors

Detectors for crystallographic applications require a unique combination of sensitivity, speed, dynamic range, resolution, and detector size. The PHOTON III, PHOTON II, and PHOTON 50 take full advantage of very-high-flux X-ray sources.

These revolutionary detectors are offered in the, D8 QUEST ECO, D8 QUEST and D8 VENTURE. All our detectors for single crystal X-ray diffraction feature our unique air-cooled design, which gives you ultimate convenience and reliability, backed by our unmatched three-year detector warranty.

PHOTON III

The new PHOTON III is the largest photon-counting pixel array detector for the home laboratory with an active area of 140 × 200 mm2. It is the first pixel array detector to support both photon counting and charge integration for the best sensitivity and dynamic range. With no gaps and no charge sharing, the PHOTON III detector delivers the ultimate in laboratory crystallography data quality.

  • Mixed-mode detection: simultaneous photon counting and integration
  • Active area of 200 × 140 mm2 without gaps
  • Single-photon counting
  • No charge sharing effects
  • No count rate saturation, zero counting losses

PHOTON II

From the company that brought you the first in-house CCD and CMOS detectors, Bruker once again continues to spearhead X-ray detector development with the revolutionary new PHOTON II, the first CPAD for in-house X-ray crystallography.

  • Largest monolithic active area of any pixel array
  • No gaps due to the use of a single wafer-scale silicon sensor
  • Single-photon sensitivity
  • No charge sharing effects, zero counting losses

PHOTON 50

The D8 QUEST ECO features the PHOTON 50 CMOS detector. The CMOS sensor used in the PHOTON 50 is two times larger than a typical CCD chip, and features 1:1 detection for up to 6 times higher sensitivity.

Additionally, zero-maintenance CMOS sensors do not suffer from the blooming and streaking seen in CCDs and thus the PHOTON 50 handles strong reflections better which results in an impressive low-resolution data quality.
