Hybrid pixel detectors play a crucial role in various research fields, enabling precise and sensitive detection of radiation or particles. Their high sensitivity, excellent energy resolution, and accurate detection capabilities make them valuable tools for obtaining precise and reliable data in scientific investigations.

High-Energy Physics

Hybrid pixel detectors are extensively employed in particle physics experiments, such as those conducted at large colliders like the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). They are used to detect and track charged particles, measure their energies, and identify different particle types. Hybrid pixel detectors enable precise position and timing measurements, crucial for understanding particle interactions and discovering new particles.

X-ray Imaging

Hybrid pixel detectors are widely utilized in X-ray imaging applications, including X-ray diffraction, X-ray crystallography, and X-ray spectroscopy. They provide high-resolution images and precise measurements of X-ray intensities and energies. Hybrid pixel detectors are valuable in material science, biology, and other fields where X-ray imaging is used to study the atomic and molecular structures of materials or analyze biological samples.

Elemental Analysis

In material science, hybrid pixel detectors are used for X-ray diffraction, X-ray spectroscopy, and X-ray imaging. They allow researchers to study the crystal structure, composition, and properties of materials. Direct conversion detectors provide high-resolution data that aids in understanding the atomic and molecular structure of materials, investigating phase transitions, and characterizing novel materials.

Synchrotron Radiation Experiments

Hybrid pixel detectors find applications in synchrotron radiation experiments where intense X-ray beams are used to investigate the structure and properties of materials. They enable high-resolution imaging, X-ray scattering, and spectroscopy techniques. Hybrid pixel detectors are crucial for obtaining detailed information about the atomic and electronic structures of materials under different experimental conditions.

Neutron Science

Hybrid pixel detectors are increasingly used in neutron scattering experiments. Neutrons are detected indirectly through conversion materials, and hybrid pixel detectors provide precise spatial and timing information. They are employed in neutron imaging, diffraction, and spectroscopy experiments, facilitating research in materials science, chemistry, and biology.
