Description

The DESY Photon Science Detector Group develops detectors for Photon Science experiments at Synchrotron Rings and Free Electron Lasers.
An overview of the development projects will be given, and in particular of the ones touching topics related to ASIC design.
We think that, in order to exploit the potential of diffraction-limited Synchrotron Rings, a new category of X-ray imagers is needed, capable of to fast, continuous operation.
Such imagers are also needed to exploit the potential of Free Electron Lasers considering Continuous Wave operation.
One ongoing development that tries to answer this need is the CoRDIA (Continuous Readout Digitising Imager Array) Imager.
The project aims to develop an X-ray imager capable of continuous operation at a frame rate of ~150 kHz, capable of photon discrimination at 12 keV, but also compatible with high-Z sensors for higher energies; further goals include a dynamic range of a few k-photons, in a limited pixel pitch
(~110um).
