At NPE 2003, Automation & Control Technology (ACT) Inc., Dublin, Ohio, introduced a device with a patented solid-state detector, rather than an ionization chamber, adjacent to the x-ray transmitter.
The enabling technology of Sandia's approach is based on a new type of solid-state detector designed with a semiconductor crystal alloy of cadmium, zinc, and telluride, which can operate at room temperature--a key advantage over conventional silicon- and germanium-based devices.

is the optic design that utilizes CCD detector technology, which is a solid-state detector rather than traditional photomultiplier tubes.
For about a decade, solid-state detector technology has been used in some spectrometers in place of photo-multiplier tubes (PMT's), because it allowed the design of optics with reduced dimensions (bench-tops or portable spectrometers) and increased flexibility regarding analytical lines selection, multi-matrix applications and up-grades.
