Hybrid pixel detectors were first developed to address the needs of particle tracking at the heart of the large LHC experiments.
The key property of these detectors is the ability to detect particles with a high signal to noise ratio even at very high speed permitting clean reconstruction of the LHC events.
In the Medipix project we adapted the same hybrid pixel approach firstly to X-ray photon counting and then to spectroscopic X-ray imaging. With the Timepix detectors we measure the arrival time of particles (these days to withing 200ps) as well as the charge collected per pixel.
Our devices have found applications in widely varying fields. These include use in classrooms to teach radiation physics, radiation monitoring at the International Space Station, electron microscopy and different kinds of medical imaging.
The seminar will introduce the concept of hybrid pixel detectors, describe how such detectors are designed and constructed, and finally outline some of the applications to which they are applied.
