Abstract
The scientific objectives and future requirements of high energy x-ray astronomy are discussed and concepts for imaging instruments based on CdZnTe detectors and coded masks are reviewed. An instrument concept based on CdZnTe strip detectors, HEXIS, is described in detail. Technical requirements for large area CdZnTe strip detectors are discussed and recent work at UCSD and WU on the capabilities of CdZnTe strip detectors is described in detail. Studies with small, approximately 50 micron beams demonstrate that crossed strip detectors have good properties for both spatial and spectral measurements.
