The current state-of-the-art spectroscopic X-ray detectors are semiconductor devices with limited energy and time resolution. The X-ray detectors are some of the most important parts of these large-scale facilities, yet only a small percentage of the capital investment in infrastructure goes to them. A totally different approach is to consider the use of new classes of materials, that can be incorporated in a cryogenic detector like the Kinetic Inductance Detectors (KIDs). Detecting X-rays using KIDs is possible by the micro-calorimeters approach known as Thermal Kinetic Inductance Detectors (TKIDs).
