An extended electron counting detector with a linear array of 1536 pixels across an active area of 38 mm×5 mm is presented. Also presented is an improved control electronics package, based on the National Instruments Compact RIO instrument programmed in Labview. Also presented is an application of the existing detector with 768 pixels, showing how the improvement in detection technology enables fresh insights into the formation of aluminium contacts on diamond.
