Investigation of the Depth Reconstruction and Search for Local Performance Variations With a Large Coplanar-Quad-Grid CdZnTe Detector

CdZnTe coplanar-grid (CPG) detector is used in the COBRA experiment to search for neutrinoless double beta decay. In the next phase of the experiment, significantly larger detectors with a volume of

Signals induced by charge-trapping in EDELWEISS FID detectors: analytical modeling and applications

The EDELWEISS-III direct dark matter search experiment uses cryogenic HP-Ge detectors Fully covered with Inter-Digitized electrodes (FID). They are operated at low fields (< 1 V/cm), and as a

Commissioning of the COBRA demonstrator and investigation of surface events as its main background

The COBRA collaboration investigates 0νββ-decays (neutrinoless double beta-decays). Therefore, a demonstrator setup using coplanar-grid CdZnTe detectors is operated at the LNGS underground

The aim of the COBRA experiment is to search for the existence of neutrinoless double beta-decay (0nββ-decay) with CZT semiconductor detectors. One key instrument to reach the required half-life

ScienceDirect Status and perspectives of the COBRA experiment

COBRA is a neutrinoless double beta decay (0νββ) experiment using an array of Cadmium-Zinc-Telluride semiconductor detectors, the isotope of interest being 116Cd with a Q-value of 2814 keV. To



Performance of CdZnTe coplanar-grid gamma-ray detectors

CdZnTe crystals grown using the high-pressure Bridgman method exhibit many properties that are desirable for radiation detector fabrication, such as high resistivity, stable operation, relative ease

Single-polarity charge sensing in ionization detectors using coplanar electrodes

A new method to preferentially sense the collection of single‐polarity charge carriers in ionization detectors is presented. It uses coplanar electrodes to closely emulate the function of Frisch
