Pixis-XB series X-ray cameras

Share this on social media:

Princeton Instruments (PI) has released the new Pixis-XB series of direct detection cameras. The cameras are designed for the extremely low flux imaging and spectroscopy applications in X-ray energy range between ~3keV to 20keV.

The models feature front-illuminated and back-illuminated, deep depletion CCDs with wide variety of formats from 1,340 x 400 to 1,340 x 1,300 pixels. These cameras provide high sensitivity and dynamic range and offer USB 2.0 interface. Full triggering/shutter control capabilities are incorporated operating at 100kHz and 2MHz.

Pixis-XB cameras are suited for medium X-ray applications such as X-ray photon correlation spectroscopy (XPCS), X-ray intensity fluctuation spectroscopy (XIFS), X-ray spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction and X-ray lithography.

The cameras are configured with air or liquid cooling (available with PI's CoolCube liquid circulator) and come with WinView/WinSpec software suites featuring powerful data acquisition capabilities. The macro record feature quickly and easily automates complex experiments. The camera line is also supported under LabView with a full suite of ready-to-use VI modules for full integration. Drivers which support the Linux operating system are also available.
