modular high speed spectral camera

AdvaPIX cameras contain single Timepix device with fast parallel readout. It allows a sustainable frame rate of up to 1700 frames per second. It is particularly designed for spectral imaging and ion detection. Thanks to our advanced data processing algorithms can be ions detected with spatial resolution of up to 200 nm.

The AdvaPIX cameras can be combined to different chip layouts (2x2, 1x4 or stack of up to 4 chips for 3D particle tracking). The each chip has a independent USB 3.0 communication channel. That assures fast read-out of the complete system. All modules in the system can be operated synchronously or triggered independently. The sensor type and thickness is of customer choice.

The AdvaPIX can be used in variety of applications such as fast radiography (X-rays, neutrons, ions), spectroscopic imaging (each pixel records the energy spectrum), particle tracking, Time-of-flight imaging, multilayer Compton camera (thin top sensor, thick bottom sensor). The sensors can be adapted for neutron imaging by deposition of converter layers (6LiF). The spatial resolution in some applications (slow neutrons) can reach units of microns or even submicrometric level (ions).

AdvaPIX now supports the CdTe pixel sensor.
