  • Characterizing sensitive CMOS radiation detector

    Semiconductor sensors cover a wide range of the electromagnetic spectrum for detecting nuclear-particle radiation. The most important properties of these detectors are their sensitivity i.e. their ability to low level radiation, charge transport, efficiency (electron-hole pair creation), and their response time. This article addresses the sensitivity of these devices. The following methods can increase the sensitivity of any electronic sensors: 1. Proper selection of the material with respect to the desired radiation detection, i.e matching the energy gap of the device, E/sub g/, to the energy of incoming radiation. 2. Application of proper process technology, such as CMOS, BiCMOS, etc. 3. Fabrication technology i.e. using proper doping, substrate, etc. 4. Finally the design of the external circuitry. This paper reports the investigation of the circuitry of a newly developed CMOS a particle radiation detector and characterization of its sensitivity. We also discuss the the effect of external power supply connection on the sensitivity, the derivation of the analytical expression for the sensitivity and we compare the theoretical prediction with the experimental values. In addition, the effect of radiation on the threshold voltage is discussed as well as an increase in sensitivity due to radiation. Finally, a method is suggested to obtain an optimum performance.

    This work presents the performance of a radiation detector based on LEC semi- insulating GaAs with Au/Zn Schottky contact at variable temperature. The roles of the shaping time of a linear amplifier and operating voltage were studied. The performance of the radiation detector was calculated from pulse height spectra of 59.5 keV (/sup 241/Am) and 122.1 keV (/sup 57/Co). The optimal reverse bias voltage of the radiation detector, shaping time of the linear amplifier and temperature of detector were investigated. The best charge collection efficiency of 98.2% at 303 K, relative energy resolution in FWHM 19.8% for 59.5 keV and 10.7% for 122.1 keV at 253 K were obtained.

  • Design and test of a CMOS low-power mixed-analog/digital ASIC for radiation detector readout front ends

    A new CMOS low-power mixed A/D ASIC for radiation detector readout front ends is presented. First, we recall the principle of radiation detection system before describing the whole architecture of the circuit. The discussion is then focused on the low-power issue. By means of an innovative 128:1 analog multiplexer, we show how we drastically reduced the mean power consumption without sacrificing constraining specifications such as the input range and the readout rate. Testing mixed A/D, but strongly analog IC is also a big issue which is addressed here. Specific built-in test analog sub-circuits have been implemented in the ASIC, along with a JTAG module used to choose the type of test to perform. This module is also used to control and tune the biasing currents of the circuit. Finally, test results are presented and show that all the specifications are satisfied.

  • A Pulsed Bias Voltage Shutdown Circuit for a Matrix Readout System of a CdTe Radiation Detector

    A pulsed bias voltage shutdown circuit to suppress the polarization effect in a CdTe radiation detector equipped with a matrix readout system was investigated. The matrix readout system is suitable for radiation detection systems that have many pixels and that are used at a relatively low counting rate, such as single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). CdTe detectors have a time-dependent polarization effect that must be suppressed. One method to suppress this effect is pulsed bias voltage shutdown. However, on the bias voltage supply side of the matrix readout system, the speed of the voltage change depends on a time constant consisting of a bias resistor and a coupling capacitor. Therefore, the voltage cannot be changed within the time constant for the matrix readout system. To overcome this limitation, three circuits have been added: a clamp circuit to the noise filter resistor of the bias voltage supply, a clamp circuit to the bias resistor, and protection circuits at the charge amplifier inputs. These circuits make it possible to change the bias voltage faster than the time constant of the bias resistor and the coupling capacitor. Although a noise signal is observed after the bias voltage has recovered, the noise decays below 20 keV about 30 ms after the bias voltage recovery. Our results demonstrated that the proposed pulsed bias voltage shutdown method is very efficient to suppress the polarization effect within 100 ms for the CdTe detector with the matrix readout system.

  • The AMS-02 Transition Radiation Detector to Search for Dark Matter in Space

    The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) is a high energy physics experiment to be installed on the International Space Station (ISS) to measure the primary cosmic ray spectrum in space. A Transition Radiation Detector (TRD) will provide a proton rejection factor of 10<sup>2</sup> - 10<sup>3</sup> at 90% electron efficiency to search for SUSY dark matter neutralino annihilations in cosmic rays in the energy range from 10 GeV to 300 GeV. The TRD consists of 20 layers of straw proportional tubes interleaved with a fleece radiator; the tubes will be filled with a Xe:CO<sub>2</sub> (80:20) mixture at ~1.2 bar to detect the transition photons. To satisfy all the requirements for the expected detector performances, it is necessary to perform careful checks of the gas parameters and the gas gain. Several tests showed that the detector can fulfill all the stringent requirements for operation on the ISS, assuring the required rejection factor in the energy range of interest.

  • Dual modality planar PET/optical scanner for imaging of surgical margins in extracted tissue samples

    We have developed a novel approach that allows for fast estimation of margins of extracted lesions. Dual modality planar optical/PET scanner consists of a pair of detector heads, suitable for imaging positron-emitting radioisotopes, a mechanical fixture to maintain constant separation between the two cameras, an optical camera that provides an anatomical map, a sliding table with an attached sample holder and a common mobile gantry that supports all of the system components. The two identical detector heads are based on a 4×4 array of Hamamatsu R5900-C-8 position-sensitive photomultiplier tubes (PSPMTs) with 4 strip anodes in each orthogonal dimension. Each tube has an active region of ∼1 inch square. The PSPMT array is coupled to a matrix of LGSO scintillating crystals; with each crystal measuring 3×3×10 mm. The active area of the PET subsystem is 10 cm square. Anode readout strips are interconnected to provide 8 read-out lines for each dimension of the detector head. Detector heads are read out by a custom-built 16-channel FPGA-based ADC. Online laminography reconstruction is performed over five parallel planes, separated by a selectable distance, and images from each plane can be directly exported into an ImageJ software package for overlay and further analysis. System calibration process is described. Results of imaging of several tissue simulating materials are presented. The ability of the proposed dual-modality scanner to detect lesions in warm background has been demonstrated. Although the proposed system will not eliminate the need for pathology analysis, it will help to reduce time in surgery by unveiling insufficient margins in the sample tissue. The system will be soon demonstrated and tested in a realistic clinical environment.

  • Front end electronics for an LHC straw transition radiation detector

    A readout system has been designed and built to match the particular requirements of straw detectors used for particle tracking and particle identification by use of the transition radiation technique. A bipolar analogue integrated circuit with very high rate capability and two thresholds to separate track signals from transition radiation photon signals forms the front end of a complete readout system which is briefly described. The front end circuit passes discriminated digital data to the rest of the system via a novel three level logic scheme. The design of the circuit and expected performance are presented and compared with results from an earlier prototype.<<ETX>>

  • Development of a Wireless Safety System Based on Multiple Radiation Detector for Nuclear Facilities

    In this paper, a system is proposed for a Nuclear facility which is comprised of multiple detectors, controlled from a single receiver end with DHCP Address Reservation Network protocol. The radiation sensor is based on Geiger Muller tube (GMT) which is a reliable detector for the radioactive particulates in the gaseous effluent vented from nuclear facilities. The detectors are interconnected and controlled from a server by a remote operator. A real-time log can be generated from respective data sent by these multiple detectors. The detectors are also implemented such a way that it is able to interact with the operator through a graphical user interface. The generated data have been further used to plot a real-time graph with MATLAB which is integrated into the system. The system is tested under several radioactive sources considering the background radiation. The graphical interpretation of the radiation pattern in terms of count per minutes versus time was obtained from the received data. This proposed system allows the remote operator to record and store the data of different radiation levels emitted from the radioactive in different time which may be used to create a radiation emission curve of a whole year. The system may be used to detect any abnormal radiation level which may be harmful to the environment and associated with the warning system for the early detection during those adverse situations.
