New DPP2 launched

2017-06-08T13:45:32+01:00November 20th, 2015|

KETEK presents its new high-performance Digital Pulse Processor (DPP2). It is optimised for KETEK's VITUS-CUBE SDD series to take full advantage of the CUBE technology: Ultra-short peaking times down to 100ns and high count rate capability up to 1Mcps both with energy resolution down to [...]

VIAMP Product Portfolio expanded

2017-06-08T13:52:57+01:00April 22nd, 2014|

A new CUBE Class has been added to the VIAMP product portfolio. With it the VIAMP OEM solution is not only available with VITUS SDDs including low-capacitance FET (Standard and Premium Class), but also with VITUS-CUBE SDDs including a new ultra-low-capacitance ASIC. This new first [...]

VITUS H150 Data Sheet published

2017-06-08T13:56:19+01:00January 24th, 2014|

The data sheet for the VITUS H150 SDD - the world's largest Silicon Drift Detector - has been published. It is summarising the unique performance and outstanding technical characteristics of the VITUS H150 SDD. This new detector with a collimated active area of 150mm² achieves [...]

Fastest VITUS SDD ever

2018-01-25T13:18:24+01:00August 12th, 2013|

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 100 ns) can [...]

World’s largest SDD

2016-10-24T21:34:50+01:00August 12th, 2013|

 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 [...]

KETEK lands on Mars

2016-03-17T16:05:52+01:00August 7th, 2012|

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 [...]

Low-capacitance FET for VITUS SDDs introduced

2016-05-12T05:08:32+01:00June 18th, 2012|

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. [...]

New World Record for Silicon Drift Detectors

2016-03-01T14:27:02+01:00January 24th, 2011|

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.
