DECTRIS Ltd. Announces New MYTHEN2 R Microstrip X-Ray Detectors for OEM use in Laboratory Diffractometers

DECTRIS Ltd. has announced its new generation of MYTHEN2 R high-performance microstrip X-ray detectors for OEM use in laboratory and portable diffractometers.

The new MYTHEN2 R series feature full-range Ti to Ag detection, supreme signal-to-noise ratios, a new control system, the ability to be combined into larger systems, and new compact size —making the series suitable for any diffractometer geometry from portable instruments to large multi-modular systems.

“The new MYTHEN2 R microstrip detectors take full advantage of our successful Hybrid Photon Counting (HPC) technology to expand their utility for OEMs even further in designing laboratory X-ray analysis instruments for high-throughput applications,” said Marcus Mueller, Ph.D., Product Manager OEM at DECTRIS Ltd..

Features of the new MYTHEN2 R microstrip X-ray detectors include:

  • Two compact, symmetrical module designs for easy integration in any diffractometer and budget — including the 1280 strip module for laboratory diffractometers, and the 640 strip module (featuring media-free operation) for portable diffractometers and robots for stress measurements.

  • Wide angular coverage — supported by the new Detector Control System (DCS4), which allows for the simultaneous operation of up to four modules. The coverage is achieved with a gap of only 6 mm between the sensitive areas of the modules.

  • The world’s smallest strip width — 50 microns — with availability in three thicknesses (320, 450, and 1000 microns) and two lengths (4 mm and 8 mm).

  • Optimal signal-to-noise ratios at low X-ray energies (Ti- and Cr- radiation) in the new 4 mm strip length. Coupled with the supreme readout time, it enables measurements using Ti-radiation and paves the way for in situ residual stress analysis.

  • The maximum sensitive area and resolution for all X-ray analyses in the standard 8 mm length. Combined with a 1000 micron sensor and Ag radiation, it brings PDF analysis from synchrotron source to laboratory.

Applications for the new MYTHEN2R series include:

  • X-ray powder diffraction and scattering techniques
  • Residual stress measurements
  • Thin film and texture analysis
  • PDF analysis
  • SAXS, WAXS, GISAXS
  • Dispersive fluorescence spectroscopy

A MYTHEN2 R detector system consists of 1 to 4 MYTHEN2 detector modules (1K or 1D); a Detector Control System (DCS4); a power supply and connecting cables. Mono-modular MYTHEN2 R systems are available in CE-certified housing. Multi-modular systems are offered as set of modules, each in individual CE-certified housing.

The new series of MYTHEN2 R microstrip X-ray detectors is immediately available from DECTRIS, Inc. For more information, visit the DECTRIS website at http://www.dectris.com or call 0041.56.500.2100
