Originally developed for synchrotron beamlines, DECTRIS EIGER2® photon-counting detectors are also available for laboratory applications. The laboratory version of these detectors enjoys all the benefits of hybrid-pixel technology, including extensive background suppression and an excellent signal-to-noise ratio thanks to absence of detector background. With their superior dynamic range, these detectors also offer highly accurate measurements of very strong and weak intensities in the same exposure.

EIGER2 detectors reduce your measurement times by delivering high quality data fast and efficiently. Additionally, their many shapes and sizes, different sensor materials, vacuum compatibility, and room-temperature operation make them easy to integrate into a wide variety of scientific instruments. 

Our OEM partners benefit from our Swiss-quality products, extended warranty, and uninterrupted support throughout the product’s life cycle. The end user, meanwhile, enjoys fast and straightforward data collection.

  • Fast: these detectors offer continuous readout for excellent duty cycle at high frame rates.
  • More & better data: the detectors feature high quantum efficiency, high spatial and angular resolution, a high count rate, and two energy-discriminating thresholds. There is no readout noise or dark current.
  • Versatile: we offer many shapes and sizes, room-temperature operation, and optional vacuum capability. The detectors are compatible with various sources.



With unbeatable speed and resolution, the EIGER2 R detectors turn good laboratory X-ray systems into exceptional ones.


With their superior dynamic range, EIGER2 R CdTe detectors add value to laboratory X-ray systems of all wavelengths.
