Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Room temperature detectors based on CdTe and CdZnTe has been widely used in radiation imaging owing to their portability, high energy resolution, large atomic number, and density. These detectors require minimal or no cooling which enables them to be applied in realistic fields such as nuclear power plants, nuclear reservoirs, astrophysics, and forensics. The development of multi-pixels and arrays based on CdTe and CdZnTe enables to construct compact 2D and 3D radiation imagers with high detection efficiency and angular resolution. Recent research for X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and Compton imaging with CdTe and CdZnTe arrays are described in this chapter.
