Silicon Drift Detectors (SDD)

SIRIUS SDD – Silicon Drift Detectors

RaySpec has a long history in producing Silicon based energy dispersive x-ray detector systems for x-ray spectroscopy applications using synchrotron radiation, conventional x-ray tube or charged particle beam excitationPreviously known as SGX Sensortech, e2v scientific instruments and Gresham Scientific Instruments, RaySpec produces Silicon drift Detectors (SDD) from standard designs through customised assemblies to complex multi-element detectors. All detectors are designed to deliver the highest specifications in energy resolution, peak to background ratio and throughput in addition to meeting our own exceptional standards of engineering quality.

The SiriusSD® range of Silicon Drift Detectors (SDD) is available in many different formats, each designed for specific applications ranging from EDS (energy dispersive spectroscopy) analysis for electron microscopy through XRF (X-Ray Fluorescence) to special applications at beamline facilities.
