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.
