Description

The PIPSBOX is a detector designed for atmospheric radioxenon monitoring. The system is able to measure the four relevant xenon radioactive isotopes using a high resolution detection system operating in electron-photon coincidence mode. It is an innovative detection system made up of a gas cell equipped with two faceto-face silicon detectors typically associated with one or two germanium detectors. 

The charge sensitive preamplifier has two input channels, one for each detector. It has a sensitivity of 400 mV/MeV, both positive and negative charge pulses are accepted and an energy output in the range of ±3.5 V on a 50 Ω termination is foreseen. It is especially designed to be used with the PIPSBOX where very low noise is required.
