X-ray Detectors


Sydor Technologies provides direct imaging X-ray detectors and sensors spanning the EUV, soft, tender, and hard X-ray regimes. Sydor offers a portfolio of detectors that optimize the capabilities of the newest and brightest light sources. For existing light sources, adding new detector capabilities can be the engine that drives new life into beamline discovery. Sydor detector solutions deliver high dynamic range, low noise, unique pixel sizes, ultrafast speeds, area solutions and electronics readouts for applications such as dynamic compression, plasma, one-time irreversible events, XRD diffraction, XRS scattering, RIXS spectroscopy and more. To optimize your beamline or detector performance, Sydor Diamond Beam Position Monitors (DBPM) solve beam, mirror or sample alignment and feedback control.
Sydor Strip Detector

The Sydor Strip Detector is a one-dimensional array detector with unique attributes of lower noise from TEC cooling and unique multiple threshold settings that allow for multi energy windowing selections. The Sydor Strip Detector is packaged for ease of installation and operation, and is very cost-effective.

Sydor Fast CCD

The Fast CCD utilizes a unique window to allow capture of EUV to tender X-rays. When combined with on board electronics that acquire at 120fps – about 100 times faster than others – the combination of soft and fast is the best option for many beamline applications.

Sydor Spectro CCD

The Sydor Spectro CCD uses the same sensor technology and covers the same range as the Sydor Fast CCD, but employs a pixel of 5 microns in the energy axis and a cooled, super low noise (4e-) backend specifically designed for highest energy resolution Spectroscopy applications. The unique 5-micron pixel resolution can allow for up to 5 times LESS spectrometer radius than other solutions.

Sydor Keck-PAD

The Sydor Keck-PAD is a fast framing x-ray camera built to capture irreversible experiments in the tender to hard x-ray regimes. Key attributes of the system include ultra-fast readout (up to 10 MHz), low noise performance (< 0.5 8 keV x-ray/pixel), and high dynamic range (1 to 8000 8keV ph/pixel/frame). The Sydor Keck-PAD features 150µm pitch pixels, in a four side tileable, 256 x 128-pixel submodules. Eight submodules are tiled together to create a 512×512 sensor array. The four side tileable submodules allows flexibility to create larger arrays in unique geometries to accommodate difficult requirements.

Sydor MM-PAD

The Sydor MM-PAD is an ultra-wide dynamic range framing x-ray camera. The MM-PAD has a sustained count rate of 4×108 photons (8 keV)/pixel/second with a full well capacity of 5 x107 photons (8 keV) per pixel/per exposure and a max faming speed of 1.1 kHz. The camera system is ideally suited to coherent diffractive imaging and ptychography experiments, where resolution is governed by dynamic range. The Sydor MM-PAD shares mechanical architecture with the Sydor Keck-PAD and has 4 side tileable submodules arranged into a 512 x 512 pixel and can be configured to meet unique geometry requirements.

Sydor X-ray Framing Camera (XFRC)

The Sydor X-ray Framing Camera is a photocathode based detector designed for use in vacuum. It provides 2D spatially time-resolved frames or 1D spectrally resolved images of target features. The system can be configured with fast or slow detection heads for frames ranging from 40 ps to 1000 ps in duration.

Sydor Continuing Developments

Sydor has established impressive capabilities with partners like Brookhaven, Cornell and Lawrence Berkley to implement detector and DBPM testing. Sydor’s detector and DBPM offerings are under continuous review for further enhancements and commercialization. Sydor is awarded various SBIR/STTR grants for R&D, optimizing capabilities, packaging and cost.
