PIXIS-XOHigh-Performance, Low-Noise Cameras

PIXIS XO photo

PIXIS-XO highly sensitive, thermoelectrically cooled cameras utilize various back-illuminated CCDs without antireflective coating for direct detection of x-rays. A rotatable ConFlat flange with a high-vacuum-seal design make these cameras well suited for UHV applications.

  • ~30 eV to ~20 keV x-ray sensitivity
  • CCDs of varying sizes without antireflective coating
  • Rotatable ConFlat flange design

Key Features

Ultimate X-Ray Imaging Capability

The PIXIS-XO offers high x-ray sensitivity over the 30 eV to 20 keV range.

Rotatable ConFlat Design with X-Ray Sensitivity

The rotatable ConFlat design offered by the PIXIS-XO delivers flexibility to align CCD x-axis to the image or spectral axis.

Combining this with sensitivity in the ~30 eV – 20 keV x-ray energy range the PIXIS-XO is able to cover a wide variety of applications.

Ultimate Flexibility

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