This study demonstrates a result of polarization effect of an X-ray imager that uses TlBr detectors with silver small electrodes. Although TlBr detectors are suitable for X-ray imaging applications because of the associated large attenuation coefficients and direct conversion behavior, realizing a flat-panel detector with TlBr involves developing processes. The demonstrated imager is constructed utilizing a combination of existing technologies; it comprises a plate electrode containing thallium metal to suppress the polarization phenomenon, pixelated silver electrodes with 80 μm pitch, and a photon-counting-Type readout integrated circuit that can work in the hole as well as electron collection modes. As a result, it was reconfirmed that the polarization phenomenon is a serious problem for small electrodes as well as for large electrodes. In addition, the polarization could have accelerated by high X-rays flux. This result can motivate the development of polarization-Tolerant small electrodes for TlBr detectors.
