X-ray detector for studying characteristics of materials

Modern synchrotron x-ray sources, such as the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron (CHESS), produce x-ray beams with unprecedented capabilities.

A great challenge at many x-ray beamlines is to direct x-rays into in a very small, very clean footprint while maintaining high photon flux.

Development of charge integrating detectors for x-ray science at high energies

X-ray detectors are an essential part of every x-ray experiment. The most common sensor material for cutting-edge x-ray detection is presently silicon.
