Flexible x-ray detectors for large area imagers: towards consumer electronics
Abstract: Techniques for non-destructive and non-invasive inspections are more and more required in our society, in different areas such as medical, industrial and security. X-ray radiation and its detection is the current inspection tool, coupled with electronic systems to gather information. However, while the electronic has gone through an impressive development to respond more and more to the need of a capillary presence in our life, without disturbing perception, the X-ray detection has remained behind. Thus, Users are limited to costly, cumbersome, fragile and extremely heavy detection devices, which do not allow nor extension to large areas neither easy integrability/conformability to a large variety of objects. FLE-X will develop the prototype of a low cost, flexible direct x-ray detector for imaging applications, which can be customized. It will be suitable for large areas inspections, and bendable around complex objects. It will be easy to handle. This will be achieved by developing printed thin films (<< 100 um) fabricated from lead-halides perovskites inks. Such device does not exist on the market. Once transformed into a commercial product, it will enable a shift paradigm for the X-ray detection market and will be a gate for new applications. To make this happen, FLE-X will identify the first process flow compatible with industrialization, will deliver a prototype of flexible X-ray imager and will provide a model and business plan which will allow an efficient technology transfer.
