By Alan Owens

Although elemental semiconductors similar to silicon and germanium are ordinary for strength dispersive spectroscopy within the laboratory, their use for an expanding variety of purposes is turning into marginalized by means of their actual obstacles, specifically the necessity for ancillary cooling, their modest preventing powers, and radiation intolerance. Compound semiconductors, however, surround the sort of wide selection of actual and digital homes that they have got turn into potential rivals in a few applications. Compound Semiconductor Radiation Detectors is a consolidated resource of knowledge on all facets of using compound semiconductors for radiation detection and measurement.


Serious opponents to Germanium and Silicon Radiation Detectors



Wide-gap compound semiconductors supply the power to function in a number antagonistic thermal and radiation environments whereas nonetheless protecting sub-keV spectral solution at X-ray wavelengths. Narrow-gap fabrics supply the opportunity of exceeding the spectral solution of germanium via an element of 3. notwithstanding, whereas compound semiconductors are often used at infrared and optical wavelengths, their improvement in different wavebands has been laid low with fabric and fabrication difficulties. to this point, just a couple of have developed sufficiently to supply advertisement detection systems.



From Crystal development to Spectroscopic Performance


Bringing jointly info scattered throughout many disciplines, this booklet summarizes the present prestige of analysis in compound semiconductor radiation detectors. It examines the houses, development, and characterization of compound semiconductors in addition to the fabrication of radiation sensors, with specific emphasis at the X- and gamma-ray regimes. It explores the constraints of compound semiconductors and discusses present efforts to enhance spectral performances, pointing to the place destiny discoveries could lie.



A well timed source for the verified researcher, this ebook serves as a complete and illustrated reference on fabric technology, crystal progress, metrology, detector physics, and spectroscopy. it may possibly even be used as a textbook for these new to the sphere of compound semiconductors and their program to radiation detection and measurement.
