    • Pixel sensitivity variation in a CdTe-Medipix2 detector using poly-energetic x-rays 

      Aamir, R.; Lansley, S.P.; Zainon, R.; Fiederle, M.; Fauler, A.; Greiffenberg, D.; Butler, P.H.; Butler, A.P.H. (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer EngineeringUniversity of Canterbury. Physics and Astronomy, 2011)
      We have a 1-mm-thick cadmium telluride (CdTe) sensor bump-bonded to a Medipix2 readout chip. This detector has been characterized using a poly-energetic x-ray beam. Open beam images (i.e. without an attenuating specimen ...
