Coordinating university:

Mid Sweden University,

Project description

The MEDIPIX collaboration, coordinated by CERN, is developing readout electronics for single photon processing pixel detectors. The objective is to make detectors for spectral X-ray imaging as well as for particle tracking. Applications outside of high-energy physics can for example be found in medical imaging and material science. Current resolution is in the keV and ns range.
