Paper Abstract

We have built a linear CCD with enhanced quantum efficiency to x-rays. The primary objective is to replace an existing scanning pinhole camera used to evaluate x-rays optics that we are developing. The scanning pinhole camera can take up to 3 hours to acquire a single scan of data. Several scans may be required in order to evaluate an optics part. By using a linear CCD, an entire scan of data can be taken at the same time, which would reduce the data collection time for an optics part to a few minutes.
