Abstract:

40464 Princeton Scientific Instruments, Inc. The intense beams-of photons, now available from synchrotron, light ring facilities such as the Advanced Photon Source (APS), make feasible research experiments that were not practical or possible heretofore, especially in the hard ultraviolet and soft x-ray regions. The intensity of the beams is high enough that high temporal resolution imaging is possible, provided that an imaging sensor could be developed for these high frame rates. Indeed, the cost-effective exploitation of these facilities is paced by the availability of suitable instrumentation. This project will develop an x-ray image sensor capable of frame rates up to a million frames per second and tailored for x-ray diffraction and other experiments employing intense beam synchrotron light rings. Phase II will result in an x-ray sensitive camera capable of a million frames per second. Anticipated Results/Potential Commercial Applications as described by the awardee: The commercial market for such high frame rate imaging extends beyond synchrotron applications and includes industrial and military high speed imaging for research and testing of materials and processes.
