We present the design and preliminary X-ray characterization of a detection module based on a monolithic 47-pixel Silicon Drift Detector (SDD) matrix. The detection system is developed in the context of the TRISTAN project, aiming at proving the existence of a keV-mass range sterile neutrino by the measurement of the tritium beta-decay spectrum. In particular, the 47-pixel module is an important project milestone due to its installation for testing and validation inside KATRIN’s (Karlsruhe Tritium Neutrino experiment) monitor spectrometer. A natural evolution of the module will be its 166-pixel version, the fundamental block constituting the future TRISTAN focal plane detector containing a total of 3486 SDD pixels

Abstract

We present the design and preliminary X-ray characterization of a detection module based on a monolithic 47-pixel Silicon Drift Detector (SDD) matrix. The detection system is developed in the context of the TRISTAN project, aiming at proving the existence of a keV-mass range sterile neutrino by the measurement of the tritium beta-decay spectrum. In particular, the 47-pixel module is an important project milestone due to its installation for testing and validation inside KATRIN’s (Karlsruhe Tritium Neutrino experiment) monitor spectrometer. A natural evolution of the module will be its 166-pixel version, the fundamental block constituting the future TRISTAN focal plane detector containing a total of 3486 SDD pixels
