|Outline of Final Research Achievements
The goal of this study is to explore "First Black Holes" born in the early universe, and to understand the formation and evolution of the universe. For this research, we have developed an X-ray SOIPIX detector with microsecond time resolution that can realizes low background performance by anti-coincidence technique as well as performances of broadband, imaging and spectroscopy.
We realized a large device with 23.3 million pixels, and a devices with an energy resolution of 216 eV (FWHM) for 6.4 keV X-rays in the event-driven readout mode. Based on the results from our research, a working group of the X-ray astronomical mission, FORCE, with X-ray SOIPIXs as its main instruments was established in ISAS. The FORCE mission was selected as one of Large Research Projects by Science Council of Japan.
