Silicon Drift Detector for X-Ray detection systems

Berkeley Nucleonics : 07 October, 2008  (New Product)
Sahara III detector offers high count rates with rapid cool down periods for X-Ray detection applications
Princeton Gamma Tech Instruments has introduced the Sahara III, a new Peltier-cooled Silicon Drift Detector which offers users an active detector area of 100 mm2.

'What would happen if you told knowledgeable users in the field of x-ray spectroscopy that there was a cryogen-free lightweight compact detector system that could achieve low-energy resolutions below 125eV and high count-rates above 100kps, and all this with a cool down period less than 2 minutes ? They would either laugh at you or insist on buying one, or multiple units", proclaims Dr Ying, Chief of Detector Technology at Princeton Gamma Tech Instruments.

The company has delivered just this with the new Sahara III, the latest in the Sahara line of superior x-ray detector systems that utilise Peltier-cooled SDD technology. The Sahara III sports an active detector area ranging from 10mm2 to 100mm2, and standard beryllium or low-energy polymer windows. The Sahara III nicely complements PGT's other x-ray detector offerings that include liquid-nitrogen cooled Si(Li), IGX and multi-element detector arrays.
