Abstract
The performance of a detector can be characterized by its efficiency for measuring individual x-rays or for measuring Bragg peak intensities. The performance for detecting individual x- rays or for measuring Bragg peak intensities. The performance for detecting individual x-rays is well modeled by the DQE. The performance for measuring Bragg peak intensities in the presence of an x-ray background can be modeled by an expanded definition of the DQE which allows inclusion of experimental constraints, the XDCE. These constraints include the observation that by increasing the crystal-to-detector distance and using a larger detector, Bragg peaks can be better resolved and the x-ray background reduced. Calculation of the XDCE for a detector consisting of a fiberoptic taper with a phosphor x-ray convertor deposited on the large end and a CCD bonded to the small end demonstrate the need to make the detector area relatively large, possibly at the expense of a decrease in the DQE.
