PIXIS-XO Direct Detection X-ray Cameras from Princeton Instruments

The advanced high-sensitivity, thermoelectrically cooled family of PIXIS-XO camera systems is designed with special back-illuminated CCDs without anti-reflection coating for direct imaging of very low energy X-rays (< 30 eV). The rotatable conflat flange design provides ultra-high vacuum hard metal seals with ability to align the CCD. When used with the software-programmable, high-capacity, or high-sensitivity amplifier, this system effectively delivers X-ray photon counting capabilities with up to 16-bit dynamic range. The thermoelectrically air cooled option provides maintenance-free operation where as water cooled option provides vibration-free operation.
