Multi-Channel Detector Arrays Deliver Reliable X-Ray Imaging

OSI Optoelectronics’ Model A2C-16-1.57 multi-channel scintillator-compatible photodiode arrays are touted as being able to produce superior X-ray imaging resolution. The devices are comprised of 16 individual elements, grouped together and mounted on printed circuit boards specially designed to allow end-to-end connectivity.  The multi-channel x-ray detector arrays offer maximum flexibility and are ideal for easy integration into new or existing systems.

 

For X-ray or gamma-ray applications, there are three scintillator-mounting options:  bismuth germinate (BGO), cadmium tungstate (CdWO4) and caesium or cesium iodide (CsI). When coupled with a scintillator, the OSI’s silicon detector arrays map any medium- or high-radiation energy over to the visible spectrum via scattering effect. For larger-scale assembly, multiple arrays may be installed to achieve optimum results.
