Paper Abstract

The Russian Space Research Institute (IKI) has developed seven flight models and three spare models of the X-ray detectors for the ART-XC/SRG telescope. Each detector situated in the focal plane of ART-XC X-ray optics and includes CdTe die, front-end electronics, data processing, storage and telemetry units. In the Space Research Institute performed a vibration, thermal cycling and thermal vacuum tests of X-ray detectors. During this tests have been studied the leakage current stability, polarization rate, spectroscopic and imaging performance in the working temperature range. The current status of the X-ray detectors development and testing presented.
