In this paper we present the working principle and the design criteria of the Controlled-Drift Detector, a novel device suitable for the simultaneous measurement of energy and twodimensional position of X rays. In the Controlled-Drift Detector the pixel structure typical of a charge-coupled device and the fast readout typical of a silicon drift detector are joined. When the radiation is to be detected, suitable potential barriers are generated to prevent the drift of the signal electrons thatdoi:10.1109/23.633425 fatcat:7rlt7v4mr5bu7odrdse3j4rqwy
