Unformatted text preview: vibration free thermo-electric coolers; any
generated heat is dissipated by passive
convection without the need for additional
cooling. • A monolithically integrated on-chip FET acts
as a signal amplifier and supports improved
energy resolution. • The sideward depletion of the active detector
volume in connection with the integrated drift
structure provides an extremely small
detector capacitance that enables the use of
fast signal processing techniques. • The pulse throughput of SDDs is higher than
that of e.g. Si(Li) by more than an order of
magnitude. • A super thin radiation entrance window
separates the sensitive detector area from
the ambient atmosphere and guarantees a
good transmission for the X-rays of interest. X-ray Wavelength as ƒ(E)!
• In describing x-rays, we make use of both the energy of the x-ray
E(keV) and its associated wavelength (nm), which are related by the
following expression: = 1.2398
E where E is the photon energy in keV.
• Energy of the excited x-r...
