Title A Prototype Gas Microstrip Wide Angle X-ray Detector
Abstract A prototype high rate position sensitive detector for Wide Angle X-ray Scattering (WAXS) studies has been constructed and tested on beamline. The detector uses gas microstrip technology and allows for both high spatial (angular) resolution and high data rate to be achieved. The detector has the capability to be used over a wide range of X-ray energies (1 to 50keV) and to achieve detected and processed photon rates in the range of MHz per strip (0.4mm) with excellent detection efficiency. Typical of this detector technology is an energy resolution of better than 16% at 6keV, which offers the possibility of energy discrimination on a photon by photon basis. The detector has been built on a modular basis for ease of support and expandability. The results of a demonstration using polymer samples on the SAXS/WAXS station 8.2 at the Daresbury Laboratory Synchrotron Radiation Source are presented.
