Authors: D.H. Lumb, A. Owens, M. Bavdaz, T. Peacock

Journal: Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research

Some examples of space-borne applications that require improvements in detector technology compared with conventional Si and Ge designs are described. Properties of compound semiconductors are noted, and a range of different detector developments are briefly reviewed. Material fabrication improvements for several compound semiconductors have resulted in near Fano-limited performance.
