New Detector Development for X-ray Astronomy

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

New Detector Development for X-ray Astronomy
"We propose to continue our detector development program in X-ray astronomy. Under our current grant we are developing a new type of active pixel detector. The current funding allows us to carry this design through CDR, but will not cover fabrication of the detectors. Here we propose to build and test these innovative detectors, which could potentially be employed in future missions such as IXO, Xenia, Gen-X, and SMEX/MIDEX-class missions. This proposal supports NASA's goals of technical advancement of technologies suitable for future missions and training of graduate students." More »
