High-performance x-ray spectroscopy.
Development and characterisation of breadboard x-ray detector demonstrating high signal to noise ratio spectroscopy using double-layer anti-coincidence detection. High-resolution spectroscopic applications using solid-state detectors can suffer from low-energy background caused by escaping electrons effectively limiting the signal to noise ratio. Application of anti-coincidence techniques using double-layer detection offers the possibility to reject detected events with uncertain initial energy and so significantly improve the overall measured spectrum. This has the potential to provide performance enhancements in both space and industrial applications. This activity aims to demonstrate this technique by producing and characterising a breadboard detector. Procurement Policy: C(3)= Activity restricted to SMEs & R&D Entities.
