Avalanche Diode Low Energy X-Ray and Nuclear Particle Detector


Avalanche diodes which are sensitive enough to detect low energy x-rays and beta particles have been fabricated and tested. They operate at room temperature and their structure is based on large area avalanche photodiodes. X-ray response has been measured over the energy range of 4 keV to 26 keV. At 5.9 keV a FWHM of 10% was obtained. In addition, multi… (More)
