X-ray – LynX

The LynX detector series are hybrid pixel area detectors based on the Timepix/Medipix3/Timepix3 technology. They have a pixel pitch of 55 µm, suitable for a wide range of applications. The capability of the LynX detectors to discriminate or measure energy of X-rays in each of its 512 x 512 pixels offers excellent performance for X-ray detection, imaging and tomography. The detectors consist of a sensor (Si, GaAs, CdTe), which is divided into an array of pixels. Each pixel is connected with miniature bump-bonds to the readout ASICs below the sensor.
