X-Rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation, with wavelengths ranging from 0.01 to 10 nanometers, having energies ranging from 120 eV to 120 keV. Due to their ability to penetrate solid objects, they can be used in many applications, from security scanners in airports to medical imaging in hospitals and clinics.
Excelitas offers high-performance detectors that can detect gamma X-Rays directly, or can be coupled to a scintillator crystal to detect very low levels of incoming radiation.
Did You Know?
X-Rays first took their name to identify them as an unknown source of radiation.
Excelitas is a leading supplier of optoelectronic sensors and modules that covers the entire electromagnetic spectrum, from Gamma Rays all the way to the Far Infrared. Whether you are looking at visible photons for fluorescence measurements, long-wavelength infrared for motion sensing, gamma rays for nuclear medicine, or anything in-between, chances are we have the detector you are looking for.
