Paper Abstract

Cadmium-Zinc-Telluride (CdZnTe) multi-pixel detectors are ideal for astrophysical application. As part of ongoing research at the Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC), we are working to develop a 64×64 fine-pixel detector for use at the focus of high-resolution grazing-incidence optics. As a first step towards achieving this goal, we present results from a 16×16 fine-pixel CdZnTe detector, 2mm thick, having a pixel pitch of 300mm and an inter-pixel gap of 50mm.
