X-ray Free-Electron Lasers (XFELs) are now bringing new opportunity in coherent X-ray Science. Future X-ray sources such as high-repetition XFELs and ultimate storage ring (USR) light sources are anticipated to advance CXS further by delivering higher repetition rate and higher brilliance of coherent X-ray beam. In this talk, we first review the current detector status at the XFEL facility SACLA [1], and try to outlook the future opportunities from the viewpoint of X-ray imaging detectors by discussing the lessons learned in the development of SOI sensor technologies [2]. Finally, a proposal of a staked-sensor concept for future photon science in the photon energy range up to 30 keV will be presented. Reference & Literature: 1. T. Kameshima,,, Rev. Sci.
