There are a number of detectors that are available on ID01. For most applications using small beams, a Si-based 2D pixel detector (Maxipix) with 516x516 pixels and 55 micron pixel size or 2D Eiger detector with 1030x2164 75 micron pixel size is used.

For full field diffraction microscopy, a 5 Megapixel cmos/ scinitllator based camera with 7 micron pixel size is the most adapted device

Other detectors can be used occasionally


Here is an overview of the detectors:
