modular high speed spectral camera

ModuPIX cameras contain single Timepix device with fast parallel readout. It allows up to 850 frames per second depending on occupancy of frames. 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 ModuPIX cameras can be on demand 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 2.0 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 ModuPIX 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).

ModuPIX now supports the CdTe pixel sensor.
