Major Research topic:
Development of a new High-Rate and High-Resolution X-ray Spectroscopy Detector

Abstract:
The PhD project is concentrated on the development of SCARLET (SDD-ASIC Array for Large Event Throughput) Analog Pulse Processor (APP), a new high-density, multichannel X-ray detector for spectroscopic applications that can achieve both high energy resolution and high counting rate. The chip layout is compatible for bump-bonding assembly with 2x2, 2mm pitch, square Silicon Drift Detector (SDD) arrays, obtaining a so-called Hybrid Pixel Detector. The full processing electronics will be implemented in a single pixel.
