WP5 Objectives

WP5 focuses on the development and assembly of an X-ray detector according to the specifications of WP2. To achieve best possible image quality, direct converting photon counting sensors with high efficiency will be used. It will be necessary to combine several detectors, ideally using a joint sensor layer and readout. For usability of the complete NanoXCT system, it will be necessary to develop a user-friendly software interface to the detector, reducing the complexity of operating the detector as much as possible. The main objectives are:

  • Development and assembly of a detector according to specification of WP2
  • Characterization and calibration of the detector
  • Development and implementation of detector software, calibration and correction routines


The project NanoXCT receives funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement n° 280987.
