Detector Technology: The S1 TITAN can be configured with either the performance-based Silicon Drift Detector (SDD) or the economical Silicon PIN Diode (SiPIN) detector.
The FAST™ SDD operates at very high count rates and thus provides excellent precision at short measurement times. In addition, the SDD allows for measurements of light elements such as magnesium, aluminum, and silicon.
The SiPIN detector is an excellent value choice when detection of light elements is not required. Good precision and accuracy are achieved using this configuration, but slightly longer measurement times are required.
