Events, conferences and congress where imXPAD is present:
Dr. Pierre Delpierre and Mr. Bernard Dinkespiler (imXPAD co-founders), as well as Dr. Christian Morel (researcher at CPPM), were awarded with Yves Rocard prize by the Physics French Society for the XPAD detector development.
30th Meeting of the European Crystallographic Association
imXPAD stands for "Imaging with XPAD detectors" and our goal is to create high-end X-ray hybrid pixel detectors.
Xpad detectors are based on the photon counting technology providing noiseless imaging with very high dynamic range (32 bits). Our detector are availables with USB or optical fiber connectivity providing high frame rates up to 700 images/second. Energy discrimination is available by setting a energy detection threshold, which opens the door to color imaging.
The design of our detectors is flexible allowing to create detectors with special geometries. Current detector materials used in our products are Silicon and CdTe
These detectors are particularly relevant in material sciences (synchrotron beam lines and X-ray laboratories), biomedical imaging (color CT), non destructive and industrial testing, and cultural heritage (art restauration for example). We are committed to satisfy your needs and to insure an efficient customer service.
Direct conversion sensors convert X-ray photons directly to electrical signal. No scattering is produced during the detection phase. Learn More
As each pixel can has its own detection threshold, electronic noise can be avoid by setting this threshold above the noise of each pixel.
Energy thresholds can be selected individually for each detector pixel. This feature allows for color imaging.
Xpad detectors are based on hybrid photon counting pixels. Hybrid means that the sensor layer is attached to the electronic layer using bumps. Like this, sensor and electronics form a single device.
Frame rates up to 700 images/sec allowing for slow motion video.
Software base in a Server/Client structure allowing for easy XPAD detector control.
Our detectors can be delivered using one of the four preformatted formats. It is always possible to ask for tiled or not tiled modules.Learn More
We like to innovate, so if you have a project in mind tell us about it and we will adapt our detector to your idea.Learn More
If you are interested in our products or you have any idea in mind in which we can collaborate, do not hesitate to contact us.
