Photon III detector
The UNSW D8 Venture has a Bruker Photon III 28 Mixed mode X-ray detector fitted.
This detector is able to work in both photon counting and integration modes allowing high signal-to-noise ratios and accurate intensities. There is no detector noise, enabling high linearity and excellent quality data.
This detector is much more sensitive than the old CCD 'home source' detectors, and coupled with the intensity of the Diamond X-ray source enables much faster data collection. Typical 'still' frames are in the order of 10 second exposures, with effectively instantaneous read-out.
