What is the difference between x ray detectors and NIR detectors?

X-Ray and NIR are two terms that describe wavelengths of light.

 

a) X-Ray refers to very short wavelengths (about one billionth of a metre or 10^-9 m)

b) NIR (Near Infrared) refers to wavelengths just a bit longer than visible light about 800 x 10^-9 m).

CsTeQ-D-L

detector-CsTeQ-D-L-01-Resonance

This is a UV CsTe diode detector. This product has a quartz window and can be mounted directly onto a vacuum system via a 2.75” conflat flange with an adapter. This diode has a 10% peak quantum efficiency.


CsIM-D-L

detector-CsIM-D-L-01-Resonance

This is a VUV CsI diode detector. This product has a magnesium fluoride window and can be mounted directly onto a vacuum system via a 2.75” conflat flange with an adapter. This diode (typically) has a 10% peak quantum efficiency.


SiX-D-L

detector-XUVSi-D-L-01-Resonance

This is an extended response silicon diode detector. This product is windowless and can be mounted directly onto a vacuum system via a 2.75” conflat flange with an adapter. This diode has response from the NIR to the XUV.
