PIXIS XBHigh-Performance, Low-Noise Cameras

PIXIS-XB thermoelectrically cooled, direct-detection cameras are ideal for the energy range ~3 – 20 keV. Available with front- back-illuminated, deep-depletion arrays and a thin beryllium window sealing the vacuum unit for deep cooling. This protects the CCD and reduces background by filtering low-energy x-rays.

  • ~3 – 20 keV x-ray sensitivity
  • Beryllium (Be) window in vacuum chamber
  • Flexible dual-amplifier readout design

Key Features

Ultimate X-Ray Imaging Capability

The PIXIS-XO offers high x-ray sensitivity over the 3-20 keV range.

Beryllium Window Design

The maintenance free Beryllium window design present within the vacuum chamber allows the PIXIS-XB to be used in a laboratory environment.

Ultimate Flexibility

Dual-ampliifer readout design allows for optimization of system performance, with the lowest possible read noise, highest dynamic range and linearity.

Lightfield Graph

Powered by LightField Software

Powerful and intuitive software with built-in math engine allows for the complete control of cameras and spectrographs, with real-time image analysis and spectral data.

LightField software provides seamless integration of hardware controls and direct data acquisition into programmes such as National Instruments’ LabVIEW® and MathWorks’ MATLAB®. This software also fully supports IntelliCal automated wavelength and intensity calibration.
