Inherently Flexible X-Ray Imaging Detector using Single Photon Avalanche Photodiodes and Scintillating Fibres

Project description

Innovative design for flexible X-ray imaging detectors

X-ray imaging is instrumental for a wide range of applications, such as medicine, food security, industrial non-destructive testing (NDT) and particle physics, but existing methods remain restricted in terms of flexibility and material cost. Inherent inflexibility of the digital electronics and scintillating materials that are applied in charge-integrating and particle-counting detectors results in inaccurate imaging of complex geometries due to geometric magnification. This represents a severe problem for industrial NDT and medical applications. Also, existing designs require both scintillating material and electronic hardware systems to be placed across the beam path, resulting in increased manufacturing and maintenance costs. The EU-funded FleX-RAY project intends to re-define X-ray detectors through a completely innovative architecture that places the electronic hardware outside the beam path, leading to reduced material and manufacturing costs.
