Passivation and improved contact deposition techniques are known to reduce the surface leakage current and decrease noise levels of CdZnTe X-Ray and gamrna-ray detectors by improving their spectral energy resolutions. This paper presents a comparative study of surface passivation process in CdZnTe X-Ray and gamma-ray detectors. The experimental study… CONTINUE READING
