DiCoMo: Direct conversion hybrid-organic X-ray detectors on metal oxide backplane
DiCoMo aims to improve the specificity and sensitivity of digital flat panel X-ray detectors. This is achieved by combining radical innovations from leading European players from various disciplines. On the backplane level metal-oxide thin film transistors enable the realization of an active pixel readout scheme. In combination with a custom made read-out IC this promises a significant enhancement in sensitivity.
On the frontplane level a novel solvent-free processing technology for hybrid-organic semiconductors is used in conjunction with hybrid-organic core-shell structures to realize thick hybrid-organic photodetectors with integrated scintillator particles for minimal optical cross-talk and enhanced resolution.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme as part of the call H2020-ICT-2014-1 under the grant agreement number 643920.
