Semiconductor Detector Systems

Helmuth Spieler


Semiconductor sensors patterned at the micron scale combined with custom-designed integrated circuits have revolutionized semiconductor radiation detector systems. Designs covering many square meters with millions of signal channels are now commonplace in high-energy physics and the technology is finding its way into many other fields, ranging from astrophysics to experiments at synchrotron light sources and medical imaging. This book presents a discussion of the many facets of highly integrated semiconductor detector systems, covering sensors, signal processing, transistors, circuits, low-noi ... More

Keywords: radiation detectors, semiconductor physics, transistors, integrated circuits, electronic noise, signal processing, digital electronics, radiation damage, high energy physics, noise reduction
