Philips Analytical: X-Ray Detector

April 3, 2001
Philips Analytical has announced its new fast X-ray detector, the X'Celerator, offering a 100-fold increase in recording speed for powder diffractometry with no compromise on resolution. Designed for the X'Pert PRO diffractometer series, the new unit is based on the company's new real time multiple strip (RTMS) detection technology. In effect, this replaces a single detector by an integrated array of parallel detectors to provide up to a 100-fold increase in efficiency compared with traditional detectors. This means a scan formerly requiring three hours of data collection time can now be recorded in less than two minutes.
