Paper Abstract

The large physical size of the TK2048 CCD and the high quantum efficiency of the silicon photosensitive surface makes possible X-ray quantum noise limited imaging in both lens coupled and fiber optic coupled configurations that afford advantages over current state-of-the-art X-ray image intensifier based systems. This paper discusses the system tradeoffs and includes examples of X-ray images made using the 2048x2048 pixel, 55mm square format TK2048 CCD.
