X-radiation (composed of X-rays) is a form of electromagnetic radiation. Most X-rays have a wavelength in the range of 0.01 to 10 nanometers, corresponding to frequencies in the range 30 petahertz to 30 exahertz (3×1e16 Hz to 3×1e19Hz) and energies in the range 100 eV to 100 keV. However, much higher-energy X-rays can be generated for medical and industrial uses, for example radiotherapy, which utilizes linear accelerators to generate X-rays in the ranges of 6-20 MeV.
Measuring at cryogenic temperatures
Using The CryoLab, it is possible to measure the performance of a Xray sensor from room temperature down to cryogenic temperatures. Cooling it down to cryogenic temperatures highly improve the signal-to-noise ratio of the sensor, increasing its sensitivity. The Xray sensor can be connected to a carrier chip to which electronic connections can be made using bond or solder wires. Measurements can be done fast and in a plug-and-play manner. Once a sensor is optimized for cryogenic temperatures, integrated solutions could be considered to develop in field applications.
