Advanced BSD Module
The new innovation- the ultrafast PNDetector’s Advanced BSD Module
We integrated professionally the preamplifier into the same ultraslim housing as the Standard BSD detector to optimize your speed of operation and the ease of workflow.
Ultrafast imaging at HD TV-speed with pixel dwell times down to 10 ns is possible
Sharp images without smearing artifacts
Direct sample search at highest scan speeds
Enhanced depth of information due to the broad energy range down to 0.5 keV
Customer specific solutions to perfectly fit any SEM system
Vacuum compatible components
Available in two versions of single and double switchable preamplification gains
To be combined with PNDetector‘s Retractable Arm to move simply through the SEM chamber
Comparison between the traditional BSD module configuration (up) and the PNDetector‘s Advanced BSD module (down). With PNDetector‘s configuration you will achieve the highest scan speed by shortening the cables between the SEM chamber and the electronics outside of the chamber

PNDetector´s Single Gain Advanced BSDs with different chip geometries
TV-Speed with signal rise time < 100 nsec and sharp images at fastest scan rate
Measured signal rise time of 10 nsec with PNDetector‘s Advanced BSD of the type ADV-BSD-40-4-1-10
Advanced BSD gain vs. electron landing energies on the detector. Preamplification gain: 1e+05 V/A
Single Gain Advanced BSD
The Single Gain version of Advanced BSD is compatible to all types of PNDetector’s BSD chips.
Switchable Gain Advanced BSD
The PNDetector’s Switchable Gain Advanced BSD is the newest consequent development of the single gain version. It covers easily the whole spectrum of your SEM with switching between 2 preamplifier gains in low energy and high speed modes.
