We report on an on-going test campaign of more than 5000 Schottky CdTe detectors (4x4x1 mm^3), over a sample of twelve thousands, provided by Acrorad Co., Ltd (Japan). 6400 of these detectors will be used to build the detection plane of the ECLAIRs camera on the Chinese-French gamma-ray burst mission SVOM. These tests are mandatory to fulfill the prime requirement of ECLAIRs to detect gamma-ray burst photons down to 4 keV. The detectors will be operated at -20C under a reverse bias of 600 V. We… 
The use of Schottky CdTe detectors for high-energy astronomy: application to the detection plane of the instrument SVOM/ECLAIRs
Ohmic CdZnTe and CdTe detectors have been successfully used in high-energy missions such as IBIS on-board INTEGRAL and the Swift-BAT in the past two decades. Such detectors provide very good quantum
The x-/gamma-ray camera ECLAIRs for the gamma-ray burst mission SVOM
We present ECLAIRs, the Gamma-ray burst (GRB) trigger camera to fly on-board the Chinese-French mission SVOM. ECLAIRs is a wide-field (~ 2 sr) coded mask camera with a mask transparency of 40% and a
Comparison of the X-ray performance of small pixel CdTe and CZT detectors
The Rutherford Appleton Laboratory has built a small pixel detector for spectroscopic measurements of high energy X-rays using CdTe and CdZnTe. The detector has an array of 20×20 pixels on a 250μm
The Potential of Hybrid Pixel Detectors in the Search for the Neutrinoless Double-Beta Decay of $^{116}$Cd
We investigated the potential of the energy resolving hybrid pixel detector Timepix contacted to a CdTe sensor layer for the search for the neutrinoless double-beta decay of . We found that a CdTe
The Chinese-French SVOM Mission: studying the brightest astronomical explosions
We present the SVOM mission that the Chinese National Space Agency and the French Space Agency have decided to jointly implement. SVOM has been designed to detect, characterise and quickly localise
Application of a pixellated detector to energy dispersive x-ray diffraction, and investigation of materials for breast tissue diffraction evaluation
Two pixellated application specific integrated circuits (ASICs) bump bonded to 1 mm thick Cadmium Telluride sensors were characterised and compared for the purpose of application in a combined energy
