PIXIS-XFHigh-Performance, Low-Noise Cameras

PIXIS XF photo

PIXIS-XF low-noise cameras utilize front- and back-illuminated CCDs for phosphor screens and other Lambertian sources, for direct detection of x-rays. . The unique mechanical design, where the fibreoptic faceplate extends outside the vacuum, offers flexibility for optimizing performance at specific x—ray energies.

  • <3 to >20 keV x-ray sensitivity
  • Front- or back-illuminated CCD options
  • Flexible dual-amplifier readout design

Key Features

Ultimate X-Ray Imaging Capability

The PIXIS-XF offers high x-ray sensitivity over the <3 to >20 keV range.

Phosphor Replacement Design With X-Ray Sensitivity

Optimization of camera performance to match x-ray energy is achievable through the use of exchanging phosphors.

This allows the PIXIS-XF to be sensitive in the 3-20 keV energy range, ideal for computed microtomography, medical imaging and industrial imaging.

Ultimate Flexibility

Dual-amplifier readout design allows for optimization of system performance, with the high sensitivity amplifier reducing read noise for weak signals. The PIXIS-XF offers increased effective dynamic range with a high capacity amplifier.
