    Si-PIN X-Ray Detectors

    The Si-PIN is a high performance thermoelectrically cooled X-ray detector. It is typically used in laboratory X-ray spectroscopy applications requiring moderate energy resolution and moderate count rates where cost is important. It is well suited to many XRF applications such as identifying metal alloys, verifying RoHS/WEEE compliance, and detecting lead in paint.
