Abstract: X-ray monitoring for astrophysical applications mainly consists of two parts - optics and detector. The article describes an approach based on a combination of Lobster Eye (LE) optics with Timepix detector. Timepix is a semiconductor detector with 256 Ã— 256 pixels on one electrode and a second electrode is common. Usage of the back-side-pulse from an common electrode of pixelated detector brings the possibility of an additional spectroscopic or trigger signal. In this article are described effects of the thermal stabilisation, and the cooling effect of the detector working as single pixel.
