This work is focused on the characterization of the Pixirad-1 detector system from the spectroscopic point of view. An energy calibration has been carried out using different X-ray sources such as fluorescence lines, synchrotron radiation and radioactive elements. The energy resolution has been measured as function of the energy and the results have been compared with theoretical estimation. Last, the charge sharing fraction has been evaluated by exploiting the monochromatic energy of the Elettra synchrotron beam.

Abstract

This work is focused on the characterization of the Pixirad-1 detector system from the spectroscopic point of view. An energy calibration has been carried out using different X-ray sources such as fluorescence lines, synchrotron radiation and radioactive elements. The energy resolution has been measured as function of the energy and the results have been compared with theoretical estimation. Last, the charge sharing fraction has been evaluated by exploiting the monochromatic energy of the Elettra synchrotron beam.
