We present the design and characterization of a detection unit for simultaneous and combined XRF and XRD analysis of powder mineralogical samples. Arrays of 32 silicon microstrips are coupled to two 16-channel CUBE preamplifiers targeting an energy resolution below 200 eV at 6 keV with moderate cooling. The compact detection module will be mounted on a goniometer inside a suitcase-sized analyzer to be operated in mining sites.

Abstract

We present the design and characterization of a detection unit for simultaneous and combined XRF and XRD analysis of powder mineralogical samples. Arrays of 32 silicon microstrips are coupled to two 16-channel CUBE preamplifiers targeting an energy resolution below 200 eV at 6 keV with moderate cooling. The compact detection module will be mounted on a goniometer inside a suitcase-sized analyzer to be operated in mining sites.
