The completely integrated hybrid-pixel electron detector from the DigitalMicrograph® software, calibrated for the most recent electron diffraction examinations, is called the Stela® Hybrid-Pixel Camera.
Stela, the first fully integrated hybrid-pixel electron detector with DigitalMicrograph software for the most recent electron diffraction research, is now available. It employs DECTRIS hybrid-pixel electron technology, which uses electron counting to eliminate noise and on-the-fly digitizing for maximum dynamic range.
One Platform, Many Solutions
- Market-leading DigitalMicrograph software: Combines diffraction imaging, 4D STEM, and hybrid-pixel electron detection with ease
- Transforms delicate observations into brilliant insights: Examine and evaluate results in minutes to enhance the experiment and get the most comprehensive 4D STEM dataset possible
- Excellent dynamic range for 4D STEM: Captures both strong and weak reflections, allowing for the most recent diffraction studies
- Obtains a 4D cube at >16,000 pixels/s:
- Reduces drift and damage to specimens
- Covers a large sample area in a short period of time
- Improved imaging at low kV: Ideal for materials that require diffraction studies at <80 kV
