Title: RADIATION DETECTOR PANEL ASSEMBLY STRUCTURE
Abstract:
According to an embodiment, a method comprises: configuring a panel plate as an entrance window for high energy electromagnetic, for example x-ray or gamma ray,radiation; attaching a bias plate on the panel plate, wherein the bias plate is configured to conduct electricity and pass the radiation through it; and attaching an array of tiles, where in each tiles comprises a direct conversion compound semiconductor sensor and a readout integrated circuit, IC, layer on the bias plate so that the direct conversion compound semiconductor sensor is configured on the bias plate; wherein the direct conversion compound semiconductor sensor is configured to convert photons of the high energy electromagnetic, for example x-ray or gamma ray,radiation into an electric current; and wherein the readout IC layer is situated next to the direct conversion compound semiconductor sensor and configured to receive the electric current and process the electric current. Other embodiments relate to a detector comprising an array of assemblies, and an imaging system comprising: an x-ray source and the detector.
