A Fully Spectroscopic Hard X-ray Imaging Detector

The HEXITEC detector measures the energy and position of every incident photon in the 4-200keV range. Each one of the 80 x 80 pixels provides a full energy spectrum with an average energy resolution of 800eV FWHM at 60keV. It is a self-contained module that only requires a mains power supply and connection to a PC or Laptop. It can be supplied with a user friendly GUI to operate the detector and provide calibrated spectra per pixel or industry standard Gig-E- Vision APIs for users to integrate into their own systems.
