Compact Particle Tracker

Tracker was designed with special emphasis to particle tracking which is often required in a scientific experimental work. Two fast versatile
modules are assembled and synchronised providing 3D particle tracking capability. Each module is a single Timepix device with fast parallel readout with up to 850 frames per second. The independent USB 2.0 communication channel for each device assures uncompromised read-out speed 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.

Tracker can be used in variety of applications such as particle tracking, Time-of-flight imaging, multilayer Compton camera, radiation monitoring and many other. The sensors can be adapted for neutron imaging by deposition of converter layers (6LiF). The spatial resolution in some applications (thermal neutrons) can reach units of microns or even submicrometric level (ions).
