As amorphous selenium based flat panel detectors gain more interest for direct, real-time x-ray imaging, we report in this paper the performance of such a detector by ANRAD Corporation. This new detector is based on a 1536 X 1536 array of amorphous silicon TFT pixels coupled with a 1000 micrometers selenium converter biased at 10 V/micrometers . Each 150 micrometers X 150 micrometers pixel is made of a thin film transistor, a storage capacitor and a collecting electrode having a geometrical fill factor of 77% and an effective fill factor of nearby 100%.
