Fiscal Year: 2006
Title: High Resolution, High-Count-Rate Silicon X-Ray Detector
Agency: DOE
Contract: DE-FG02-06ER84404
Award Amount: $100,000.00
 

Abstract:

X-ray detectors with high resolution, high sensitivity, and high count-rate are required for the electron beam systems used for materials science research at DOE facilities. In many studies conducted with electron beam systems, the characteristics of available X-ray detectors limit the system performance. This project will develop low-capacitance, high-purity silicon detectors that offer high energy resolution, high efficiency, high count-rate operation, and easier fabrication. Phase I will demonstrate the feasibility of producing high-resolution, high-purity silicon detectors with low capacitance. The high-resolution detection of X-rays with the new detector will be demonstrated. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits as described by the awardee: The detectors should be useful in X-ray detection studies conducted with electron beam systems. Additional applications include nuclear and particle physics, astronomy, synchrotron studies, health physics, nuclear non-proliferation, and non-destructive studies
