|Title of the thesis:||Characterization of an LBNL FastCCD Detector for the European X-ray Free Electron Laser|
|Summary:||The European XFEL is an international research facility, currently under commissioning in Schenefeld/Hamburg, Germany. First user experiments are planned for the end of 2017. The main purpose of the facility is to create ultrashort coherent X-ray pulses with a peak brilliance exceeding currently existing facilities. Charge-coupled devices (CCDs) are widely used as scientific detectors for diverse applications, such as spectroscopic detectors or X-rays imaging cameras. The 1k Frame Store FastCCD detector (1k FS FastCCD) is a soft X-ray CCD-based detector, optimized for usage in the energy range from 0.25 keV to 6 keV. The aim of this thesis is to analyse the performance of the FastCCD camera for the European XFEL purposes. To understand the FastCCD operation, a chapter about CCDs' working principles and general characteristics is included. A detailed characterization of the first prototype for XFEL.EU is presented, as well as a description of the analysis software used. The characterization of the FastCCD is part of the acceptance test of the detector at the European XFEL facility.|
