Recent developments in CdTe and CdZnTe detectors

2000 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium. Conference Record (Cat. No.00CH37149), 2000

Cadmium telluride (CdTe) and cadmium zinc telluride (CdZnTe) has been regarded as a promising semiconductor material for hard X-ray and gamma-ray detection. The high atomic number of the materials (Z-Cd=48, Z-Te=52) gives a high quantum efficiency in comparison with Si. A large band-gap energy (Eg/spl sim/1.5 eV) allows us to operate the detector at room temperature. However, a considerable amount ...

Novel phoswich counters have been developed that are capable of detecting low flux hard X-rays gamma -rays from localized sources. The counter consists of a small inorganic scintillator with a fast decay time (the detection part) glued to the interior bottom surface of a well-shaped block of another inorganic scintillator with a slow decay time (the shielding part). The well-shaped ...

  • Recent developments in CdTe and CdZnTe detectors

    Cadmium telluride (CdTe) and cadmium zinc telluride (CdZnTe) has been regarded as a promising semiconductor material for hard X-ray and gamma-ray detection. The high atomic number of the materials (Z-Cd=48, Z-Te=52) gives a high quantum efficiency in comparison with Si. A large band-gap energy (Eg/spl sim/1.5 eV) allows us to operate the detector at room temperature. However, a considerable amount of charge loss in these detectors produces a reduced energy resolution. This problem arises due to the low mobility and short lifetime of holes. Recently, significant improvements have been achieved to improve the spectral properties based on the advances in the production of crystals and in the design of electrode. In this overview talk, we summarize (1) advantages and disadvantages of CdTe and CdZnTe semiconductors, (2) a technique to improve the energy resolution and photopeak efficiencies at high gamma-ray energy, and (3) recent achievements of segmented (strip and pixel) CdTe and CdZnTe detectors. The application of these imaging detectors in future hard X-ray and gamma-ray astronomy missions is briefly discussed.

  • Well-type phoswich counter for low-flux X-ray/ gamma-ray detection

    Novel phoswich counters have been developed that are capable of detecting low flux hard X-rays gamma -rays from localized sources. The counter consists of a small inorganic scintillator with a fast decay time (the detection part) glued to the interior bottom surface of a well-shaped block of another inorganic scintillator with a slow decay time (the shielding part). The well-shaped shielding part acts as an active collimator as well as an active shield. The whole assembly is viewed by a phototube from the exterior bottom surface of the shielding part. By using an appropriate pulse-shape discriminator, hard X-rays/ gamma -rays that have deposited energy only in the detection part can be selected. The first model counter was built by using a new scintillator, GSO, in the detection part and CsI(Tl) in the shielding part. A detector system consisting of 64 such phoswich counters (total area approximately 740 cm/sup 2/) was flown on board a balloon, setting a limit to the /sup 57/Co line flux from SN 1987A at around 10/sup -4//cm/sup 2/-s. The sensitivity for continuum flux was around a few*10/sup -6//cm/sup 2/-s-keV between 100 and 200 keV.<<ETX>>

  • Development of high-resolution CdTe radiation detectors in a new M-/spl pi/-n design

    The authors have developed M-/spl pi/-n (metal high-resistivity p-type crystal, highly n-type epilayer) CdTe detectors in a new design that are suitable for X-ray and /spl gamma/-ray spectrometry in the range of a few tens to several hundred kilo-electron volts. Using high-resistivity single crystal CdTe substrates (resistivity /spl sim/10/sup 9/ /spl Omega//spl middot/cm), an iodine-doped n-CdTe layer was grown homoepitaxially on one face of each wafer at a low substrate temperature of 150/spl deg/C using the hydrogen plasma radical assisted metalorganic chemical vapor deposition technique. An indium electrode was deposited on the n-CdTe side as an ohmic contact by evaporation without heating the crystals, while a gold electrode was deposited on the opposite side for metallic contact. The leakage current was decreased to around 0.5 nA for a 2/spl times/2 mm/sup 2/ detector of thickness 1 mm at room-temperature (18/spl deg/C) and around 10 pA at -15/spl deg/C for an applied negative bias of 350 V. Low leakage currents in the detector enabled the authors to apply higher bias voltages resulting in better charge collection efficiency and improved spectral responses for different radioisotopes.

  • DRAGO chip: a low-noise CMOS preamplifier-shaper for silicon drift detectors with on-chip JFET

    We propose a CMOS preamplifier-shaper circuit designed to be used with silicon drift detectors (SDDs) for X-ray spectroscopy and /spl gamma/-ray imaging applications. The circuit is composed by a low-noise preamplifier and by a 6th order semiGaussian shaping amplifier with four selectable peaking times from 1.7 /spl mu/s up to 6 /spl mu/s. The integrated time constant used for the shaping is implemented by means of a recently proposed 'RC' cell. This cell is based on the well known technique of demagnification of the current flowing in a resistor R by means of the use of current mirrors. The particular solution here adopted allows a precise and stable implementation of the desired time constant, for given values of R and C, and guarantees low-noise performances of the shaping amplifier when used with a cooled SDD or other solid-state detectors with low leakage current. In this work, the main features of the circuit are first presented. The experimental results obtained in the characterization of the first prototype realized in the 0.35 /spl mu/m AMS technology are then reported and discussed. The energy resolution measured using the chip with a SDD is 150 eV at 6 keV which corresponds to an electronics noise of 10.8 e/sup -/ rms.

  • Reviewing polycrystalline mercuric iodide X-ray detectors

    Polycrystalline films of HgI2, which are used as nuclear radiation detectors, are fabricated by two different methods, either by physical vapor deposition (PVD) or glued with a polymeric binder called also "particle in binder" (PIB). Both types of PVD or PIB detectors are deposited directly on TFT imagers and can be used for X-ray imaging. The present review will concentrate on PVD- poly-HgI2. However, the main review body will be a summary of the work performed by RTR, HU and Varian. Works by other groups will be mentioned briefly. The PVD process will be explained by reviewing XRD and SEM data. The charge transport properties of the PVD-polycrystalline HgI2detectors as they improved with R&D efforts will be shown. The response of these PVD detectors to241Am and57Co gamma rays and their X-ray imaging properties such as dark currents, sensitivity, and imaging resolution will be reviewed

  • A rising war on terrorists

    Technology for detecting and preventing acts of terrorism is addressed. Attention is directed toward methods for detecting explosives. The one technology, thermal-neutron activation (TNA), that has so far proven that it can quickly and reliably detect specified quantities of explosives within luggage and divert suspect bags without human intervention is described. Promising alternatives to TNA, which is very expensive, are resonance absorption of gamma rays and fast neutron activation.<<ETX>>

  • Detectors for the X-ray testing systems

    The gallium arsenide detectors working in photovaultarical mode on epitaxial films compensated by chromium are developed. It is shown that in such detectors it is possible to essentially increase the efficiency of charge collection at inclined position of the detector relatively X-rays. The image with resolution 5 lp/mm is received by created coordinate detectors.

  • X-ray radiation from nonlinear Thomson scattering of an intense femtosecond laser focussed in an helium gas jet

    We have observed the X-ray radiation produced by the nonlinear Thomson scattering of an intense femtosecond laser on relativistic electrons. The 1 J 30 fs laser beam is focussed on a helium gas jet and the X-ray radiation is detected using a grazing incidence X-ray spectrometer. The analysis of the data shows that the effect of the plasma as well as the additional acceleration of the electrons inside the plasma waves should be taken into account to fit the experimental results.

  • Optimal X-ray imaging geometry for flat-panel cone-beam computed tomography [prostate radiotherapy application]

    A theoretical method for identifying optimal X-ray imaging geometry is presented and applied to cone-beam CT (CBCT) using a flat-panel imager (FPI). The method includes the effects of X-ray source distribution, imaging task, X-ray scatter, and detective quantum efficiency (DQE) on the ICRU-recommended figure of merit for image quality-detectability index. Cascaded systems analysis for FPIs is extended to incorporate the effects of X-ray scatter directly into the DQE. For the FPI-CBCT prototype being implemented for image- guided radiotherapy of the prostate, optimal magnification is /spl sim/1.4-1.6, depending primarily on the magnitude of the X-ray scatter fraction.
