- It was found that a new type of solid-state detector known as the self-scanning photodiode array can be used to obtain the active readout of data in wavelength-dispersive x-ray spectrometers. The use of this device to recover x-ray spectral data for glass microspheres heated by Lawrence Livermore Laboratory's CYCLOPS laser is reported. The self-scanning photodiode array is a product of the MOS electronics fabrication technology. It consists of an array of semi-discrete diffused junction photodiodes deployed along a line on a silicon chip. The signals generated in the array of diodes are serially-scanned and multiplexed by a scanning circuit built on the chip. The sensitivity and other aspects of the response of the photodiode arrays to low-energy x-rays has been previously reported. The photodiode array was used in conjunction with a flat KAP single-crystal in a series of spectrometry experiments. Of particular interest has been the analysis of the hydrogen-like and helium-like 1s-2p radiations of silicon in the neighborhood of 2 keV.
