X-ray imaging

X-ray Tomography

X-ray imaging is the primary application of our devices. Our hybrid pixel detectors are single-photon-counting devices. It means that only signals generated by X-rays are detected. Contrary to regular X-ray digital imaging sensors (CCDs, flat panels) there is no dark current integrated. Therefore, the dynamic range achievable in X-ray images taken with our LynX and Cheetah detectors is virtually unlimited.

Our devices can also create color images such as the right figure of a Spinach seed.
