Silicon Chip of the XMM X-Ray CCD Camera

The 6 cm×6 cm large pn-CCD will be the heart of the EPIC/XMM camera. The picture shows the twelve chips mounted and the connections to the integrated preamplifiers. The quantum efficiency is greater than 80% over the whole XMM energy range of 200 eV to 12 keV. It is extremely radiation-resistant, has a good energy resolution, and owns an excellent time resolution. The development and production is realized by the MPE.
