CdTe (Cadmium Telluride Detector)
The CdTe detector is a thermoelectrically cooled X-ray detector available in several preamplifier configuration options. The high stopping power of CdTe makes excellent for applications requiring high detection efficiency at energies up to 100 keV. Its performance, small size, and low cost make it ideal for applications including monitoring of X-ray tubes and ED-XRF on the K lines of rare earth metals, lead, gold, uranium, and other high Z materials.
