TPX3

Miniaturized Spectral Imaging Camera

Speed 2.35M hits/s or 16 fps
Size 65K pixels

MiniPIX
TPX3 camera is miniaturized and low power radiation camera with particle tracking and imaging detector Timepix3. The camera module contains CERN's latest Timepix3 detector, which is position, energy and time sensitive. For each ionizing particle it digitally registers its position, energy, time of arrival and track shape. The other measures can b...

Technology

Advacam's imaging cameras are direct conversion single photon counting pixel detectors that represent the cutting edge of current radiation imaging technology. The term “single photon counting” means that every single photon of X-ray radiation detected in individual pixel is processed and counted. The technology brings two major advantages in comparison to the conventional X-ray imaging - high contrast together with sharp high resolution images and spectral information of the radiation that allows material specific information to be displayed in colors.

Applications

Non-Destructive Testing

Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) is inspection, test, or evaluation of materials, components or assemblies for discontinuities, or differences in characteristics without destroying the serviceability of the sample. Standard radiographic X-ray imaging provides a black and white intensity or density imag ...

Small Animal Spectral Imaging

Cancer research, bio-mechanics, and drug testing are just a few examples of where X-ray imaging contributes to research in biology and medicine. New photon counting detectors represent a serious advancement for these applications, compared to previously used synchrotrons. The energy sensitivity of m ...

Mining and geology

Resources mined from Earth fuel our society. However, efficient, eco-friendly mining is a must if we want to keep the economy and society sustainable. Cheap, fast exploration for mineral resources is required. Geology is a tool to understand our planet and also to help find resources still undiscove ...

Authentication of art

Study and characterization of art pieces, namely paintings, using X-ray imaging is becoming an increasingly important area. It is useful for galleries, museums and collectors to improve conservation and preservation methods. It is important for art buyers to reliably authenticate t ...

X-ray diffraction

X-ray diffraction is analytical method based on inspection of crystalline structure of samples used in applications, such as metallurgy, mineralogy, powders, pigments, polymers, surface layers and strain mapping. The traditional X-ray diffraction uses monochromatic X-rays which make the apparatus la ...

Other applications

ADVACAM offers cameras and solutions for multiple other application such as electron microscopy, crystallography, neutron imaging, charged particle tracking and dosimetry for cancer therapy. In addition, number of cameras are being used in the basic research, such as at CERN's LHC accelerator, and f ...

Customer References

  • Commercial Off-the-Shelf Space Product
    The Miniaturized Particle Telescope is much more compact than systems previously used. It can be held in your hand, and uses two USB connections to a laptop for all of its power and data acquisition and synchronization.
  • MiniPIX is About as Fun as a Product Can Get
    MiniPIX is teeny and deceptively simple to use, but if you’re in space, you’ve just survived a nuclear apocalypse, or you’re a physics fan interested in how much radiation hits you on a daily basis, it’s about as fun as a product can get.
