We report on a new photon-counting detector possessing unprecedented spatial resolution, moderate spectral resolution and high background-rejection capability for 0.1–100 keV X-rays. It consists of an X-ray charge-coupled device (CCD) and scintillator. The scintillator is directly deposited on the back surface of the X-ray CCD. Low-energy X-rays below 10 keV can be directly detected in the CCD. The majority of hard X-rays above 10 keV pass through the CCD but can be detected in the scintillator… CONTINUE READING
