The TT-PET project: a 30 ps Time of Flight PET scanner in silicon pixel technology

21.03.2018 11:15 – 12:15

The TT-PET collaboration is developing a small animal scanner for positron emission tomography based on silicon pixel detectors. The core element of the scanner is a full efficiency 1.1 × 2.4 cm2 monolithic silicon sensor in SiGe BiCMOS technology. The sensor, developed at the DPNC, will have a pixel size of 0.25 mm2, low-power consumption and 30 ps time-of-flight resolution. The scanner will be a layered structure, approximately 1.5 cm thick.

Thanks to the sub-mm 3D detection granularity the scanner will have an unprecedented resolution for image reconstruction, while the compact structure will make it ready for insertion in a MRI machine.
