WidePIX
2(1)X5 - MPX3

Industrial Spectral Camera

Speed 50 fps
Size 328K - 655K pixels

WidePIX
2(1)x5 - MPX3 camera consists of either 2x5 or 1x5 Medipix3 devices. Each pixel has two integrated 12-bit digital counters and two energy discrimination thresholds. Both counters can be joined to a single 24-bit counter providing enhanced dynamic range. The camera can be constructed with Si or CdTe edgeless sensor tiles. The edgeless sensor tech...

2(1)X5

Industrial Scanning Camera

Speed 40 fps
Size 328K - 655K pixels

WidePIX
2(1)X5 camera consists of either 2x5 or 1x5 Timepix devices. The camera can be constructed with Si or CdTe edgeless sensor tiles. The edgeless sensor technology allows placing all tiles tightly together from all sides. Thus the whole imaging area of the camera is fully sensitive to the radiation - there are no gaps between the tiles in the image...

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

Tough, light and reliable materials are the key to many developments. Identification of defects, impurities or cracks in these materials is often crucial. X-ray imaging is a tool that has been used for these purposes for a long time. However, standard imaging technologies are often tuned for metals. ...

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 microscopy

X-ray microscopy offers very high resolution radiography or computed tomography images of the samples. Advacam's photon counting cameras are able to enhance the quality and resolution of the images while speeding up the imaging process. The spectral imaging capability can be utilised to discriminate ...

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.
