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 [...]

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.

NEW 50mm² High-End SDD with guaranteed <127eV energy resolution

2016-03-01T14:27:02+01:00October 22nd, 2010|

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 < [...]

New Large Area Vacuum SDD for TXRF Applications

2017-04-03T16:29:32+01:00July 9th, 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 [...]

New Product – KETEK DIXAS

2016-10-24T21:34:53+01:00July 7th, 2007|

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 [...]

World’s First Analytical Drift Detector

2016-03-01T14:27:03+01:00August 3rd, 2006|

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.
