100 Element Ge Detector

100 Element Ge Detector


Manufactured by Canberra GmbH

Germanium planar pixels detector

10 x 10 pixel array, 5 mm x 5 mm pixel size

Crystal thickness: 7 mm

Maximum count rate: 350 kHz at 18 keV (per channel)

Resolution: ≤ 260 eV at 6 keV and 100 kHz

Use of a “grid collimator” to cover border areas between neighbouring pixels to avoid “crosstalk” effects

Mask material: Aluminium-covered Titanium
