An important and developing protein-crystallography field is time-resolved crystallography using syDynamic crystallography, however, imposes challenging requirements on detectors. As with other areascrystallography, the x-ray sources are advancing much more rapidly than the detector technologies. Tdescribes a very advanced detector that will be particularly useful for time-resolved Laue diffractidetector is called the High Speed Crystallography Detector (HSCD). The HSCD is a room-temperature, lspatial- resolution, high-speed, adjustable-frame-rate detector with very high sensitivity (a near-oEfficiency [DQE], for a single x-ray photon). The HSCD offers orders of magnitude improvement over cresolved two-dimensional crystallography detectors. The HSCD will have an adjustable integration timand is capable of storing up to 200 consecutive frames.
