Successful Demonstration of Fastest Electron Detector Ever Made


Scientific Achievement

Successful installation and testing of the new 4D Camera that can produce continuous electron images every 11 microseconds. That's about 60X faster than what was possible with previous high speed electron detectors.

Unique Advances Enabled by the 4D Camera

87,000 frames/second, optimized for high dynamic range through speed and sensitivity

Potential Impact of the New Capability
