20 January 2004 Vortex: a new high performance silicon multicathode detector for XRD and XRF applications
Author Affiliations +
VortexTM, a high performance Silicon Multi-Cathode Detector (SMCD), has been developed and extensively tested for potential X-ray Diffraction (XRD) and X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) applications. As a type of Silicon Drift Detector (SEE), it utilizes our patented structure design and has achieved very low capacitance and very low leakage current with a relatively large active area (~50 mm2). Results will be presented to demonstrate its superior performance over the conventional cryogenic Si(Li) detectors, especially in the resolution and throughput at short peaking times. The detector operates at near room temperature and is thus very compact in size. These features make it idea for XRD and XRF applications.
