The XFlash® Detector hast started a new era: X-ray detection at or close to room temperature with excellent energy resolution and extremely high pulse load capability.

The core piece of this innovative system is a silicon chip which functions according to the drift chamber principle. Due to the special chip design with integrated charge amplifier the XFlash® can process extremely high count rates and at the same time displays a very good energy resolution.

The XFlash® offers the following advantages over conventional thermoelectrically or liquid nitrogen cooled detectors

  • Excellent energy resolution
  • Extremely high pulse load capacity
  • No vibration-generating cooling systems
  • Low operating cost
  • Maintenance-free operation
  • Small dimensions
  • Low weight
