Abstract [en]

In recent years, X-ray detectors used and developed at synchrotron sources and Free Electron Lasers (FELs) have become increasing powerful and versatile. However, as the capabilities of modern X-ray cameras grew so did their complexity and therefore their response functions are far from trivial. Since understanding the detecting system and its behavior is vital for any physical experiment, the need for dedicated powerful simulation tools arose. The HPAD Output Response fUnction Simulator (HORUS) was originally developed to analyze the performance implications of certain design choices for the Adaptive Gain Integrating Pixel Detector (AGIPD) and over the years grew to a more universal detector simulation toolkit covering the relevant physics in the energy range from below 1 keV to a few hundred keV. HORUS has already been used to study possible improvements of the AGIPD for X-ray Photon Correlation Spectroscopy (XPCS) at the European XFEL and its performance at low beam energies. It is currently being used to study the optimum detector layout for Coherent Diffration Imaging (CDI) at the European XFEL. Simulations of the charge summing mode of the Medipix3 chip have been essential for the improvements of the charge summing mode in the Medipix3 RX chip. HORUS is universal enough to support arbitrary hybrid pixel detector systems (within limitations). To date, the following detector systems are predefined within HORUS: The AGIPD, the Large Pixel Detector (LPD), the Cornell-Stanford Pixel Array Detector (CSPAD), the Mixed-Mode (MMPAD) and KEKPAD, and the Medipix2, Medipix3 and Medipix3 RX chips. © 2012 IOP Publishing Ltd and Sissa Medialab srl.
