Abstract:
A decade ago, prototypes of the Maia detector successfully demonstrated a fresh approach to X-ray fluorescence microscopy (XFM) imaging that combined a massively parallel detector architecture with dedicated pulse shaping and capture on each channel, asynchronous acquisition of X-rays as an event stream, and real-time processing of the event data. Today, a number of XFM beamlines that raster scan a sample through a focused X-ray beam to construct images of element concentration and chemical state use a 384-detector array version of Maia for high-throughput, high-definition XFM. The beamlines include those at the Australian Synchrotron (AS) in Melbourne, the PETRA III synchrotron at DESY, Hamburg, the CHESS synchrotron at Cornell University in Ithaca, and the NSLS-II at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) in New York.
