The PCO edge and all Ximea detectors are in commissioning and will be released to user operation soon. (Detectors in brackets are not yet in user operation).

The magnification values may vary about +/-5%. Thus the FOV and eff. pix. sizes vary accordingly.

The resolving power of the microscope is limited to ~1µm, regardless of the effective pixel size!

The speed of each camera can be enhanced by using lower digitalization modes and / or setting ROIs or binning. If you need faster image acquisition, please contact the beamline staff.
