Anton Paar and DECTRIS Ltd. join forces by integration of EIGER detectors into the SAXSpace system

SAXSpace AP Dectris (PresseBox) (Baden/Graz, ) Petra Kotnik, Department Manager of Material Characterization at Anton Paar GmbH, and Clemens Schulze-Briese, CSO at DECTRIS Ltd., have agreed to integrate the new EIGER R 1M detector in the SAXSpace laboratory SWAXS system from Anton Paar.

The EIGER R 1M is DECTRIS latest Hybrid Photon Counting (HPC) detector for laboratory applications. Its outstanding features convinced Anton Paar to offer the novel detector with their excellent SAXSpace system.

Heiner Santner, Product Manager for SAXS products at Anton Paar, states: "DECTRIS HPC detectors are renowned for their single-photon sensitivity. In addition, the new EIGER R 1M combines small pixel size with a sharp point-spread function to achieve exceptional resolution. We make use of of the EIGER 2D detector's advantages for fast and accurate analysis of nanostructured materials in our SAXSpace system. Scientists benefit from a large detector area, excellent resolution and unmatched readout speed and data accuracy."

"Being our first partner to sign a frame contract for EIGER detectors shows that Anton Paar is dedicated to providing their customers with state-of-the-art technology in cutting-edge instruments," says Clemens Schulze-Briese. "We are happy that Anton Paar fully integrates EIGER detectors into its outstanding SWAXS systems that are easy to use and that make the most out of the potential of our detectors for the users."
