Advacam MiniPIX TPX2

Quantum imaging detection and track visualization of space radiation in LEO orbit/500 km by the Timepix detector onboard the Cubesat VZLUSAT-2. Timepix resolves different particle types – in the image registered in January 2023, energetic protons (broad, large straight tracks) and energetic electrons (thin long tracks) can be seen. Both components are trapped radiation in Earth’s radiation belts. Low energy electrons (small tracks) and X-rays (few pixel tracks) are also resolved and registered (in the bottom right region of the pixel detector behind the X-ray optics). The color scale displays the per-pixel deposited energy.
