Title: R&D 100, 2016: Ultrafast X-ray Imager

The Ultrafast X-ray Imager is a solid-state camera capable of capturing a sequence of images with user-selectable exposure times as short as 2 billionths of a second. Using 3D semiconductor integratiomore »n techniques to form a hybrid chip, this camera was developed to enable scientists to study the heating and compression of fusion targets in the quest to harness the energy process that powers the stars.« less
