Paper Abstract

We have developed high energy and high spatial resolution two-dimensional (2D) solid-state imaging pixel detectors and their custom integrated circuits (ICs). Solid-state pixel detectors and their readout ICs are now regarded to be an integral part of position-sensitive semiconductor detectors such as Si, CdTe and CdZnTe for x-ray and gamma-ray imaging. These detectors have a 2D structure. We have also developed one-dimensional (1D) detectors, which are mostly used for scanning type imaging. The new 2D pixel detectors we have developed can be used for both scanning and staring mode imaging applications. Because the requirements of various detector applications tend to be diverse, a custom IC is typically designed for a specific detector array. This often lengthens the time and raises the cost of system development. To help close the readout technology gap and facilitate advances in this field, we have been formulating and implementing strategies for instrumenting different detectors of a given application category with highly versatile ICs that meet a range of requirements. The solid-state pixel detectors that have been developed within this effort are presented below.
