SDD and BSD Products


The Complete SDD Module

New XRF and SEM Product Line

Silicon Drift Detector Droplet High reliability packaging makes use of novel hermetic sealing based on modern welding and brazing techniques. It is combined with our novel radiation entrance window the PTW (Planar Thin Window). Full control and visibility is offered by integrating pressure and temperature sensors. Peltier cooling power is reduced by more than 50%.

SDD Racetrack

Unique Oval Shaped SDDs for Very Close Proximity to the Sample

SDD Racetrack These SDDs make use of an oval shaped active area. Therefore they can be placed extremely close to the sample even in applications with limited available space. This leads it largely increased solid angles.
