A large area, 120.29 x 72.42 mm2, linear Silicon Drift Detector (SDD) has been developed for X-ray spectroscopy in 2-50 keV energy range.

Abstract

A large area, 120.29 x 72.42 mm2, linear Silicon Drift Detector (SDD) has been developed for X-ray spectroscopy in 2-50 keV energy range. This is the baseline detector for both the Large Area Detector and the Wide Field Monitor of the LOFT mission concept. Elaborated via a number of prototypes, the final detector design features elements to meet the requirements of a modern space-borne X-ray detector with a power consumption below 0.5 mW/cm2 of sensitive area, offering the possibility to perform time resolved, spectral X-ray observations.
