On February 2nd, Dr. Adrian Losko, instrument scientist at the NECTAR neutron radiography facility of the Research Neutron Source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II) will talk at our TUM-IAS Wednesday Coffee Talk on "New Perspectives for Imaging Detectors through Advanced Event-Mode Data Acquisition".
(TUM Press Release).

Recently developed event-driven detectors are capable of registering spots of light induced by interactions in scintillator materials. Reconstructing the Center-of-Mass of the individual interactions, it is possible to significantly enhance spatial and temporal resolution of recorded radiographs. Utilizing this principle, a new era of detectors has emerged that provides super spatial and temporal resolution, adjustable field-of-view, ad-hoc binning and re-binning of data based on the requirements of the experiment including the possibility of particle discrimination via the analysis of the event shape in space and time. It is considered that this novel concept might replace regular cameras in imaging detectors as it provides superior detection capabilities compared to conventional frame-based camera systems.
