We are proud to develop and manufacture high-performance X-ray and electron detectors that, in the hands of our users, enable new scientific achievements!

About Us

DECTRIS is focused on developing and manufacturing high-quality, high-performance hybrid-pixel X-ray and electron detectors. We are the global leader in hybrid-pixel X-ray detectors (HPC) for science and industry, and develop our technology to advance new markets such as medical, electron microscopy, and X-ray inspection.

DECTRIS provides reliable, easy-to-integrate detectors that enable customers to focus on their unique competitive advantages. With our comprehensive technological knowledge and industrial-scale manufacturing, our users enjoy consistent product quality and on-time delivery. Our noise-free, spectral, and fast detectors provide better data that keeps users ahead of the competition.

With the world’s most advanced detector technology, we are achieving breakthroughs in performance and precision for all fields of X-ray detection. Now, researchers and engineers can get more accurate data for faster analysis and product development.

With expertise in ASIC development, we achieved a significant breakthrough in electron detection. Today, DECTRIS offers fast electron-counting detectors that do not compromise on high-dynamic range or sensitivity and help advance applications such as 4D STEM, EELS, and microED.

DECTRIS is the hybrid-pixel detector company of choice for scientists desiring premier performance, plus the confidence of working with a stable, trusted technology partner.
