Hamamatsu Photonics introduce the C9728DK-10, an x-ray sensitive, “active pixel CMOS” image sensor. Each separate pixel in the Megapixel (1056x1056) image format has an individual amplifier, providing extremely low noise readout. The noise is at least six times lower than existing conventional passive type CMOS flat panel sensors from Hamamatsu.

Utilising a CDS (Correlated Double Sampling) circuit and a direct deposition (DD) columnar structure CsI scintillator, the C9728DK-10 can create high quality true 14-bit digital video signals. The specific DD CsI scintillator construction eliminates the need for focusing lenses or tapered fibre-optics associated with use of CCD sensors, which can cause image distortion and / or peeling problems in the field.

This very low noise sensor is therefore suitable for x-ray diffraction pattern imaging and other scientific x-ray imaging requiring very low noise. Hamamatsu also supplies a range of sealed and open type micro-focus x-ray sources for high resolution x-ray imaging applications.
