The sensitivity of experiments searching for neutrinoless double beta-decay of ger-manium was so far limited by the background induced by external γ-radiation. Segmented germanium detectors can be used to identify photons and thus reduce this background component. The GERmanium Detector Array, GERDA, will use highly segmented germa-nium detectors in its(More)
The GERmanium Detector Array, GERDA, is designed for the search for " neutri-noless double beta decay " (0ν2β) with germanium detectors enriched in 76 Ge. An 18-fold segmented prototype detector for GERDA Phase II was exposed to an AmBe neutron source to improve the understanding of neutron induced backgrounds. Neutron interactions with the germanium(More)
