Study of Power Consumption of Timepix3 Detector

The Timepix3 readout chip—the latest member of the Medipix family of hybrid pixel detectors—brought several new functionalities in comparison with the older Timepix, i.e. a high hit-rate, a time granularity of 1.5625 ns, a data-driven readout scheme (with a per pixel dead time of approximately 475...

X-ray imaging with high-Z sensors for the ESRF-EBS Upgrade

The Extremely Brilliant Source (EBS) upgrade of the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) sets new requirements for the detection schemes used in various beamlines. In order to facilitate direct x-ray detection at moderate and high energies in the range of 30–100 keV we investigate the performance...

Subpixel resolution in CdTe Timepix3 pixel detectors

Timepix3 (256 × 256 pixels with a pitch of 55 µm) is a hybrid‐pixel‐detector readout chip that implements a data‐driven architecture and is capable of simultaneous time‐of‐arrival (ToA) and energy (ToT: time‐over‐threshold) measurements. The ToA information allows the unambiguous identification of...

Compact and portable X-ray imager system using Medipix3RX

In this paper the design and implementation of a novel portable X-ray imager system is presented. The design features a direct X-ray detection scheme by making use of a hybrid detector (Medipix3RX). Taking advantages of the capabilities of the Medipix3RX, like a high resolution, zero dead-time, single...

The ATLAS tracker Pixel detector for HL-LHC

The high luminosity upgrade of the LHC (HL-LHC) in 2026 will provide new challenges to the ATLAS tracker. The current Inner Detector will be replaced with an all-silicon tracker which will consist of a five barrel layer Pixel detector surrounded by a four barrel layer Strip detector. The expected...
