Portable Small USB Camera

camera contains single Timepix device with Silicon sensor. Detector can be coupled with a pinhole, coded aperture or X-ray optics. The system can be used in imaging applications for example X-ray or neutron imaging. It has ability to recognise individual ionizing particles and sort them into several groups according their tracks e.g. X-rays, electrons, neutrons, alphas etc. Energy can be measured for each detected particle. Therefore, this device can find use for instance in radiation monitoring or ionizing particle tracking.

The energy sensitivity built into this small device brings a new dimension to the radiographic imaging. The compact size allows the camera to be inserted into pipes or confined spaces and take images otherwise difficult to make. It uses USB 2.0 interface and is fully plug’&’play.

  • 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.
