NPX-M Segmented Imaging Germanium Detector Systems

A PHDS Co. NPX-M Planar Imaging Germanium Detector System uses a compact long-lived (>50,000 hrs ~ 5.7 yrs) Stirling-cycle mechanical cooler to replace liquid-nitrogen cooling. When fully integrated, a single button starts the NPX-M detector system. A click of the mouse starts gamma-ray data acquisition. Temperature interlocks and critical system functions are monitored by the internal power control system.

NPX-M segmented imaging germanium detector systems

Originally developed for Nuclear Physics Research in collaboration with physicists at Argonne National Laboratory, UMass Lowell, ORNL and supported by the DOE Office of Nuclear Physics, the NPX-M Germanium Detector System now provides a turnkey solution without the hassle of liquid nitrogen cooling.

The NPX detectors were developed with the support of a DOE Office of Science SBIR Grant “Development of Reliable Segmented Germanium Planar Detector Systems for Nuclear Physics” [Grant #DE-FG02-03ER83742].
