The detection module of the ARDESIA spectrometer, an SDD-based, multichannel X-ray detector is presented. The detector design and experimental characterization are discussed. ARDESIA has been optimized for synchrotron radiation applications that require high-rate (>1-Mcps per channel) and high-resolution (better than 200 eV at 6 keV) X-ray detection. The main target applications considered in this development are X-ray fluorescence and X-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy, in particular for the DAFNE-Light DXR1 beamline at LNF (Frascati, Italy).

The detector consists of a four-channel monolithic array of SDDs, produced by Fondazione Bruno Kessler (Trento, Italy) connected to a four-channel monolithic CUBE preamplifier mounted on the same carrier. The CUBE preamplifier, compatible with both analog and digital pulse processing, enables reaching high count rates (1-Mcps per channel), while keeping good spectroscopic performances. It is extremely low white series noise guarantees good energy resolution, even at short pulse processing times (below 200 ns).

Abstract

The detection module of the ARDESIA spectrometer, an SDD-based, multichannel X-ray detector is presented. The detector design and experimental characterization are discussed. ARDESIA has been optimized for synchrotron radiation applications that require high-rate (>1-Mcps per channel) and high-resolution (better than 200 eV at 6 keV) X-ray detection. The main target applications considered in this development are X-ray fluorescence and X-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy, in particular for the DAFNE-Light DXR1 beamline at LNF (Frascati, Italy). This detector is based on a compact unit (16 mm x 16 mm) that can he replicated and juxtaposed with several units, thus easily covering different detection configurations. The detector consists of a four-channel monolithic array of SDDs, produced by Fondazione Bruno Kessler (Trento, Italy) connected to a four-channel monolithic CUBE preamplifier mounted on the same carrier. The CUBE preamplifier, compatible with both analog and digital pulse processing, enables reaching high count rates (1-Mcps per channel), while keeping good spectroscopic performances. It is extremely low white series noise guarantees good energy resolution, even at short pulse processing times (below 200 ns).
