学术报告：Development of Hybrid X-ray Detectors at PSI
报 告 人：Jiaguo Zhang (Paul Scherrer Institute)
The detector group of the Swiss Light Source at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) develops cutting-edge hybrid X-ray detectors in-house, including photon-counting detectors for synchrotron radiation sources and charge-integrating detectors for Free-Electron Lasers (FELs). In this talk, an overview of the detector development at PSI will be given.
In addition, Gotthard-II, a silicon micro-strip detector developed for the European X-ray Free-Electron Laser (XFEL.EU), will be discussed. The potential scientific applications of Gotthard-II include X-ray absorption/emission spectroscopy, hard X-ray high resolution single-shot spectrometry (HiREX), energy dispersive experiments at 4.5 MHz frame rate, beam diagnostics, as well as veto signal generation for imaging detectors at the XFEL.EU. Gotthard-II uses a silicon microstrip sensor with a pitch of 50 μm or 25 μm and with 1280 or 2560 channels wire-bonded to readout chips (ROCs). In the ROC, an adaptive gain switching preamplifier (PRE), a fully differential Correlated-Double-Sampling (CDS) stage, an Analog-to- Digital Converter (ADC) as well as a Static Random-Access Memory (SRAM) capable of storing all the 2700 images in an XFEL bunch train will be implemented. Several prototypes with different designs of analogue front-end (PRE and CDS) and ADC test structure have been fabricated in UMC-110nm technology and their performance has been evaluated according to the XFEL.EU specifications. In addition, a prototype with complete circuit chain of 8 channels including analogue front-end, ADC and SRAM has been designed and fabricated. The performance of the prototype in terms of noise, linearity, dynamic range, coupling between channels and speed have been investigated and will be discussed.
