New LYNXEYE XE-T Detector

The LYNXEYE XE-T detector provides four times better energy resolution than traditional silicon strip detectors. This removes unwanted radiation such as fluorescence, K-beta radiation and bremsstrahlung background, without meaningful losses in one-dimensional detection speed.

The D2 PHASER with LYNXEYE XE-T sets a new standard for benchtop-class high-speed data collection, outstanding peak to background ratio and data quality.

Highest Quality Data

  • 4x better energy resolution than any other 1D detector.
  • Data acquisition up to 450 times faster than a conventional point detector.
  • No need for Kß filters, mirrors or monochromators.
  • Perfect line profile shapes with no Kß filter artifacts.
  • Best lower limits of detection and quantification.
  • Radiation hard – operate with all common characteristic X-ray emission lines.
  • Guaranteed no defective channels at delivery.

Fluorescence and White Radiation Filtering

Below, a natural iron ore sample was measured with a standard linear detector (left) and LYNXEYE XE-T (right) with the same scan conditions. The calcite peak is only visible with the LYNXEYE XE-T, due to its superior lower limits of detection.

Superior Line Profile Shapes

Below is a comparison of corundum data (NIST SRM 1976b) from a standard detector (left) and LYNXEYE XE-T (right). The black line is unfiltered radiation. You can see that with LYNXEYE XE-T (red line) there is no remnant Kß or absorption edges:
