21 November 2000 Scanned x-ray images from a linear CdZnTe pad array with monolithic readout electronics

A linear CdZnTe pad detector array with approximately 1 mm2 pad area has been developed. The detector has a wide energy range from about 20 to 200 keV. To read out these detector arrays, a fast, low-noise monolithic mixed signal ASIC chip has been developed. A prototype x-ray imaging system consisting of the CdZnTe detector array and the monolithic ASIC chip has been fabricated and tested. In this system, the detectors are abutted against each other to form an approximately 1 m long linear array. The system has been used to take preliminary scanned images of complex objects at various energies. New results from this system will be presented.
