24 October 1997 CCD developments in x-ray imaging from synchrotron radiation sources

To maximize the power of synchrotron radiation as an analytic tool, much is dependent on the performance of the detector. A review is presented of state of the art integrating and photon counting detectors using CCDs, currently the subject of much activity and driven by recent developments in very large area arrays. The synergies with other scientific applications are strong. In x-ray astronomy, a number of new missions will be launched this decade which will utilize the latest developments in CCD detector technology for the focal plane sensor. These will provide simultaneous imaging and spectroscopy of astronomical sources, carried out with unprecedented sensitivity. Reviewed will be the key operating parameters of the CCD, such as the energy resolution, detection efficiency and speed together with major aspects of its practical realization in imaging applications.
