Semiconductor X-ray detectors have been fabricated from high purity TIBr crystals grown by the traveling molten none method. X-ray detection characteristics of the TIBr detectors in the individual quantum pulse mode as well as in the current mode have been studied. An energy resolution of 2. 5 keV FWHM has been recorded for 22 kcV X-rays with a TIBr detector operated in the individual quantum pulse mode at room temperature, The TIBr detectors in the current mode have been tested as flux detectors for an X-ray CT scanner system of a first generation type. The performance of the system has been tested using a wooden phantom. The X-ray CT system has shown good imaging capabilities.
