World's largest SDD

KETEK presents the world's largest Silicon Drift Detector with a collimated active area of 150mm². With typically FWHM≤133eV and P/B>15,000 it offers an excellent performance. Despite the exceptionally large active area, the Be window remains with only 25µm very thin allowing very good transmission. Also the TO housing is with 22mm more


Fastest VITUS SDD ever

KETEK presents its next SDD generation: The VITUS-CUBE series. It comes with a new ultra-low-capacitance ASIC (Cube) as first preamplification stage instead of a classical FET. With this ASIC a dramatically improved energy resolution at very short peaking times (as short as 100ns) can be offered. For example, the new VITUS C30 with 30mm² more


SiPM World Record for Photon Detection Efficiency

With its new PM1150 Silicon Photomultiplier (SiPM) module, KETEK achieves a world record of 60% for photon detection efficiency (PDE) of SiPMs. An unprecedented high PDE value of 60% for blue light (420nm) will be guaranteed for the new 1.2x1.2mm² large SiPM with 50µm microcell pitch and 70% geometrical efficiency, operated at 5.5V above more

KETEK lands on Mars

On board of Mars rover Curiosity and as part of a X-ray spectrometer, KETEK’s Silicon Drift Detectors have arrived on the Red Planet. The X-ray instrument, again part of an onboard science laboratory, irradiates a rock or soil target with X-rays. The irradiation results in the target giving off own characteristic X-ray radiation, which more


Low-capacitance FET for VITUS SDDs introduced

KETEK launched a next VITUS SDD generation with new low-capacitance FET leading to a significantly improved energy resolution of less than 139eV at peaking times as short as 1µs. This is a gain in FWHM of about 20eV compared to the previous VITUS SDD generation. The new FET will be standard for all detector sizes from 7mm² to 80mm² active more


New World Record for Silicon Drift Detectors

120.9eV MnKa energy resolution (FWHM at 5.9keV) demonstrated in an EDX microanalysis application with KETEK's latest generation 30mm² SDD in combination with an excellent carbon resolution of 46eV. The unprecedented SDD performance, close to theoretical limit, enables material imaging analysis in the nanometer regime. more

KETEK is introducing its new 50mm² silicon drift detector with unpecedented guaranteed energy resolution and large thermal budget: Guaranteed FWHM ≤ 127 eV at 16 µs peaking timeGuaranteed Peak to Background  > 10000 (typically > 12000)FWHM at + 40°C heat sink temperature still < 133eV 65mm² SDD chip size more


First KUBUS 3S MiniComputers for secure data communication delivered to customers

The shipment of the new KETEK USB stick-shaped MiniComputer with biometric recognition and multiple identification and authentication for a server communication infrastructure has started. KUBUS 3S is not only a mobile datasafe (upto 32GB) or an access key solutions. All applications are loaded locally without accessing the files structure more


New Large Area Vacuum SDD for TXRF Applications (July 2009)

KETEK offers a new vacuum type SDD with an area of 115 mm² collimated to an active area of 80 mm². The energy resolution is typically below 130 eV for the Manganese Ka line and peak to background values of more than 12.000 can be achieved. Since the SDD chip surface is only 1.8 mm below the Be window plane realistically distances around 3mm more
