Graham Dennis at the Diamond Light Source has used data they have on the Quantum Detectors V2F along with data from Ricardo Hino’s (ESRF) data on the V2F100 to compile a comparison of the uncertainty of measurement against the integration time used in an experiment. The two devices have similar performance down to 0.3 seconds, […]
