Evaluation of a back-illuminated solid state detector with thin dead layer for super heavy element research
The precise energy measurement of charged particles using a silicon semiconductor detector (SSD) is very important in studies of the characteristics of superheavy elements (SHEs). It is necessary to
Analysis of the attainable efficiency of a direct-bandgap betavoltaic element
Conversion of energy of beta-particles into electric energy in a p-n junction based on direct-bandgap semiconductors, such as GaAs, is analyzed considering realistic semiconductor system parameters.
Study The Responsory And Quantum Efficiency of Silicon P-N Junction by Using Pulse Plasma
In this work we have used plasma pulsed injector to prepare a P-N junction. Antimony was deposited on P-type silicon wafer and Indium was deposited on N-type silicon wafer. They were considered as
ECV investigation of ion-implanted photosensitive silicon structures for backside illuminated CCDs
Boron implanted Si structures used in back-side illuminated and electron bombarded charge coupled devices (CCD) were investigated by means of electrochemical capacitance- voltage (ECV) profiling. A
Investigation of Ion-Implanted Photosensitive Silicon Structures by Electrochemical Capacitance–Voltage Profiling
The method of electrochemical capacitance–voltage profiling is used to study boron-implanted silicon structures for CCD matrices with backside illumination. A series of specially prepared structures
Silicon PIN Diodes as Neganov–Trofimov–Luke Cryogenic Light Detectors
Cryogenic rare event searches based on heat and light composite calorimeters have a common need for large area photon detectors with high quantum efficiency, good radiopurity and high sensitivity. By

Carrier lifetimes in silicon
Carrier lifetimes in semiconductors are being rediscovered by the Si IC community, because the lifetime is a very effective parameter to characterize the purity of a material or device. It has become
The KATRIN Pre-Spectrometer at reduced Filter Energy
The Karlsruhe Tritium Neutrino (KATRIN) experiment will determine the mass of the electron neutrino with a sensitivity of 0.2 eV (90% CL) via a measurement of the β-spectrum of gaseous tritium near
Dead layer measurements for KATRIN prototype PIN diode array
Dead layer measurements for a prototype PIN diode array for the KATRIN (KArlsruhe TRItium Neutrino) experiment are presented. KATRIN is a direct neutrino mass measurement of tritium beta decay near
Auger coefficients for highly doped and highly excited silicon
The recombination kinetics in highly doped p‐ and n‐type silicon has been investigated at 77, 300, and 400 K through the radiative band‐to‐band recombination. The minority‐carrier lifetime depends
