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 time Guaranteed Peak to Background > 10000 (typically > 12000) FWHM at + 40°C heat sink temperature still < [...]
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 [...]
KETEK's new class 1000 clean room has started operation in April 2008. The new facility has is equipped with state of the art air filtering and climate controls. Under three laminate air flow areas a particle density below 100 /inchÂ³ is reached. Expertise our regularly trained [...]
Birthday on Mars – the two Mars MER-Rover, equipped with six KETEK alpha particle detectors and a customized SDD, are still active and could celebrate their 5th birthday after landing on Mars on the 4th of January in 2004.

In October 2008 KETEK started the construction of a new backend production line in the new floors at the companies headquarter in Hofer Str. 3. Due to the growth of the company in the past years, the cleanroom floorplan was more than doubled. KETEK is proud [...]
End of March 2008 KETEK was certified by TÜV Management Services for the integration of a quality management system according to ISO 9001:2000 for "sales, manufacturing and development of semiconductor detectors, detector systems and corresponding electronics". During the last 1.5 years KETEK worked on this [...]
The new KETEK DIXAS (Digital X-ray Acquisition System) comprises any type of KETEK´s approved VITUS SDDs, a low noise preamplifier, a fast Digital Pulse Processor (DPP) and all necessary electronics and power supplies. The system is ready for operation within minutes after receipt. All settings [...]
KETEK is proud to announce the launch of the world's first silicon drift detector specifically designed for the needs of the analytical community. This ADD is seamlessly integrated into Oxford Instruments' new INCAx-act and performs significantly better at low energies than any other SDD sensor.
