Abstract

Single X-ray photon counting pixel detectors have become the most advanced detector technology in synchrotron radiation experiments recently. In particular, the PILATUS detector based on a silicon sensor has reached a very mature state and represents the world's largest detector in this field. This paper first reports on threshold energy calibrations and the capability of applying an energy-resolved X-ray imaging with PILATUS. Second the design of a cadmium telluride (CdTe) pixel detector is described. A high density and high-atomic number sensor material is required in high energy X-ray applications available at SPring-8. For this purpose we are developing a CdTe pixel detector with the SP8-01 readout ASIC covering a wide dynamic range between 10 and 100 keV and containing lower and upper discriminators.
