Title: A High Purity Silicon X-ray Detector
Agency: DOE
Contract: DE-FG02-04ER84053
Award Amount: $100,000.00
 

Abstract:

75170-X-ray detectors with high energy resolution, high sensitivity, and high count-rate performance are required in electron beam systems for materials science research. In many X-ray detection studies conducted with electron beam systems, system performance is limited by the characteristics of available X-ray detectors. This project will develop novel low-capacitance, high-purity silicon detectors that offer high energy resolution, high efficiency, high count-rate operation, and easier fabrication. Phase I will prove the feasibility of producing the high resolution, high purity silicon detectors with low capacitance. Then, the actual high resolution detection of X-rays will be demonstrated by using new detector. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits as described by the awardee: The primary application of the new detectors would be in X-ray detection studies conducted with electron beam systems. Additional applications should be found in nuclear and particle physics, astronomy, synchrotron studies, medical imaging, nuclear non-proliferation, and non-destructive studies.
