Detector - MCD20

Description - Detector System MCD 20
MCD 20 is the result of several years of development collaboration between Space Research Daresbury Synchrotron Research facilities and VSL
A large number of channels available at this detector ensures that the energy resolution is never compromised by the width of the detector channels. This ensures a greater flexibility of operation as different techniques of analysis require frequent adjustment of analyzer input slit width now the only determinant of the energy resolution.
The output area does not mechanically change and is fully utilized by the whole detector for spectrum acquisition.
The present detector technology makes it possible to design channels of any shapes and sizes and expand number of channels further to utilize area behind the analyzer fully for data acquisition by different new techniques.
