CdTe sensors

CdTe sensors are produced with 1mm and 2mm thickness. The high efficiency of the CdTe sensors allows the use for applications with X-ray energies above 40 keV.

Medipix2 and Timepix detector modules with CdTe sensors are with 55 µm and 165 µm pixel size:

  • Single module kit with 65 K pixels and 2 sqcm active area

  • Hexa module with 390 K pixels and 12 sqcm active area

More details are available here.


The attached images show were recorded with single (55 µm) and Hexa (165 µm) modules  using CdTe sensors.
