The LAMBDA pixel detector is designed for high-end X-ray experiments, particularly at synchrotron sources. It achieves an extremely high image quality by combining effectively noise-free photon-counting operation with a small pixel size of 55 µm. For fast and time-resolved experiments, LAMBDA can be read out at up to 2000 frames per second with no time gap between images. But speed and resolution are not the only thing LAMBDA excels at, you can find a more detailed description of our systems features here. Upon request we also provide LAMBDA versions that can be operated in vacuum.
Effectively zero noise (photon counting)
55 µm pixel size
Up to 2000 frames per second
up to 1536 by 1536 pixels (85 x 85 mm2)
Energy binning capability
Using only a single Medipix3 chip, LAMBDA 60K units offer the best value for money
LAMBDA systems with Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) or Cadmium Telluride (CdTe) sensor are available in a special 350K version using a monolithic sensor mated to 2x3 Medipix3 chips
Standard, full size LAMBDA 750K systems offer superior performance in a user friendly design.
Largest LAMBDA systems tile multiple modules together to provide the largest possible detection area.
