A hybrid pixel detector with 25µm pitch has been developed to record multiple x-ray images with integration times as short as 1ns to measure the implosion dynamics of inertial confinement fusion experiments. The 1024x448 pixel detector is fabricated with Sandia’s 0.35µm technology and consists of a silicon diode array directly bonded to a CMOS ASIC. The ASIC incorporates a global shutter with adjustable integration and interframe timing and 2-frame in-pixel analog storage with a maximum of more than 1 million electrons per frame. Next-generation cameras are being designed and fabricated that will provide 4 and 8 frames per pixel.
