EIGER is a Single Photon-Counting pixel detector built at the Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI), in collaboration with the ESRF. The detector is designed for synchrotron applications such as Coherent Diffractive Imaging, Ptychography, Small Angle X-ray Scattering, Protein Crystallography and X-ray Photon Correlation Spectroscopy. We will first desccribe the properties and performances of the EIGER chip, then the tests and software integration of the detector at the ESRF beamlines. We will show the challenges faced in terms of data acquisition and the first successful results obtained at the ESRF with this detector.
