EG&G XRD-52B Biplanar High Speed Sub-Nanosecond X-Ray Detector Aluminum Cathode
This is an EG&G Energy Measurements model XRD-52B sealed x-ray vacuum biplanar phototodiode. The XRD series of fast-response detectors was developed to meet the demands of advanced fusion experiments. Unlike many other XRD series detectors, the XRD-52B has a beryllium window, and is permanently evacuated, for operation in high pressure environments. Although the exact response is unknown, risetime is on the order of a few hundred picoseconds.
