Tests were performed at the SPS facilities at CERN using a 40 GeV/c pion beam with prototype 3D-Timepix3 detectors (3D detector). A planar-Timepix3 (planar detector) was placed along the beam axis together with the 3D detectors in a telescope arrangement for comparison and reference. We demonstrate that the combination of 3D-geometry silicon sensors and Timepix3 module can reduce the effect of charge sharing and lowers the carrier drift-time, while giving the same spectroscopy performance without sacrificing the timing or any performance advantages of the Timepix3 module.
