Who We Are


Athlos is an x-ray imaging sensor developer and manufacturer whose human resources and established global network have created and shaped direct conversion x-ray imaging for decades. We specialize in x-ray imaging based on CdTe, Si and HgI2 combined with full custom CMOS readout, in charge integration and photon counting mode. We offer x-ray imaging sensors and flat panels based on these technologies for a plurality of applications in the dental, industrial and medical market.


In the era of global economy, technological advances and cost competiveness in manufacturing require strong national and international ties, collaborations and networking and to that effect Athlos is working in close cooperation with
VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Access for process development and production in Micronova Cleanrooms, one of the leading European Nanofabrication Centres;
ADVEOS a full custom CMOS design house;
ADVACAM an expert producer of fully depleted Si detectors and provider of micro packaging and manufacturing services;
Direct conversion X-ray imaging detector material suppliers, and R&D centers, of CdTe, CdZnTe, HgI2, perovskites.
