This functionality makes the detector particularly useful in the detection of sudden external event, while not limiting any normal uses. DESCRIPTIONNormal CMOS or CCD detectors do not give any information as to how the incident radiation changes over the exposure period, for example whether the radiation is a steady value or whether it is subject to a sudden increase over the period. The new CMOS detector has the ability overcome this limitation by sto...Tue, 23 Dec 2014 05:20:30 Cryostat, 22 Dec 2014 08:53:06 Particle Analyser has developed a novel ionising particle analyser which enables the separation of the fluorescent yield and electron yield in EXAFS (extended X-ray absorption fine structure) measurements.
