Abstract
THIS PROJECT IS DESIGNED TO STUDY THE PROPERTIES OF NOVEL, SEMICONDUCTING, POLYMERIC MATERIALS TO ASSESS THEIR POTENTIAL FOR USE AS NEW TYPES OF PARTICLE DETECTORS ENVISIONED FOR USE IN FUTURE EXPERIMENTS AT THE SUPERCONDUCTING SUPER COLLIDER (SSC). THE STUDY INCLUDES THE FABRICATION OF SIMPLE DEVICES, SUCH AS SCHOTTKY BARRIER DEVICES, FROM ION-IMPLANTED SEMI-CONDUCTING POLYMERS (E.G. POLYANILINE) AND INVESTIGATION OF THEIR ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES. IF SEMICONDUCTING POLYMERIC DEVICES CAN BE FABRICATED WITH SUFFICIENT RESPONSE TIME AND ADEQUATE DEPLETION DEPTH, THESE MATERIALS WOULD POSSES A CLEAR ADVANTAGE OVER CRYSTALLINE SILICON DETECTORS, BECAUSE OF THE FLEXIBILITY, LOW COST, AND POTENTIAL RADIATION HARDNESS OF THE SEMICONDUCTING POLYMER MATERIALS.
