Compact Photon Counting X-ray Detector

Rigaku’s HyPix-3000 is a next-generation two-dimensional semiconductor detector designed specifically to meet the needs of the home lab diffractionist. One of the HyPix-3000’s unique features is its large active area of approximately 3000 mm² with a small pixel size of 100 μm², resulting in a detector with high spatial resolution. In addition, the HyPix-3000 is a single photon counting X-ray detector with a high count rate of greater than 10⁶ cps/pixel, a fast readout speed and essentially no noise.

HyPix-3000 Overview

Unprecedented Flexibility

Featuring a double-threshold (window) discriminator, the HyPix-3000 has three readout modes that can be selected based on the purpose of a measurement. “Differential” mode can be used to suppress fluorescence from elements in a sample or background derived from cosmic rays. “31-bit” mode is used for experiments in which a very wide dynamic range is needed. “Zero dead time” mode makes it possible to perform extremely fast data collection.

Easy to Use; Easy to Maintain

The HyPix-3000 was designed for optimal flexibility and minimal maintenance. For example, the compact angular enclosure was designed to allow excellent high angle accessibility. Compared to the design of other types of detectors, the HyPix-3000 is essentially maintenance free. Unlike other types of detectors, it does not require an external cooling device as required on CCD detectors, or gas exchange and anode wire washing as required on multi-wire detectors.
