The IRD AXUV 100GX absolute X-ray photodiode from Opto Diode Corp., a div. of ITW, Newbury Park, CA, is a semiconductor radiation sensor for detecting photons and other particles. The device possesses a 10 mm by 10 mm active area, room-temperature operation, a nitrided oxide front window for up to 1 Gigarad of radiation hardness, and a small detector footprint. It requires no external voltage for operation. It has known-active silicon thicknesses and 100% internal quantum efficiency to enable the absolute measurement of X-ray flux with energies 100 keV and above. Applications include solar spectrum studies. (805-499-0335, fax 805-499-8108, www.optodiode.com)
