Publication date: 30 November 2006
Authors: Lumb, D., et al.
Journal: Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research Section A
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.Link to publication
