MYTHEN X-ray detector systems available from Dectris have redefined data acquisition at synchrotron beamlines and laboratory X-ray sources. The systems feature a microstrip solid-state detector that integrates a segmented one-dimensional silicon sensor with a CMOS-based ASIC readout electronic, linked by advanced high-density wire bonding technology.
The MYTHEN systems offer excellent data quality, rapid data acquisition and simple, maintenance-free operation. Fast data acquisition is achieved by advanced CMOS readout electronics; excellent data quality is facilitated through exclusive features, such a high dynamic range with a counter depth of 24 bits (~16.8 million counts), the absence of dark current and readout noise and a sharp line-spread function.
Simple integration and maintenance-free operation via three different interface options make it easy to use the Dectris MYTHEN detector systems.
The main features of the MYTHEN Microstrip X-ray detectors are:
- High modularity
- Radiation-tolerant design
- Shutterless operation
- Fluorescence suppression
- High dynamic range
- High local and global count rates
- Optimal signal-to-noise ratio
- Electronic gating and external trigger
- Short readout times and high profile rates
- Excellent point-spread function
- Multitude of applications
- Maintenance-free operation
