  • The authors report the results of a beam test at KEK using double-sided AC-coupled silicon microstrip detectors with binary readout, i.e., a readout where the signals are discriminated in the front-end electronics and only the hit location is kept. For strip pitch between 50{micro} and 200{micro}, they determine the efficiency and the noise background as function of threshold setting. This allows them to reconstruct the Landau pulse height spectrum and determine the signal/noise ratio. In addition, the threshold/noise ratio necessary for operation with low occupancy is determined.

  • This paper presents the response of an hydrogenated amorphous silicon thin film p-i-n diode to protons as a function of the applied bias. A typical pulse shape is also presented. These data are understood on the basis of a model whose main features are fast ({lt}5 nsec) electron collection and slow (few {mu}sec) hole collection due to multiple trapping transport through the shallow gap states. The overall charge normalization yields a means pair creation energy {epsilon}p of 3.4 - .4 eV, comparable to 3.63 eV in crystalline Silicon despite the large 1.7 eV gap. To understand this result, a microscopicmore » Monte Carlo calculation, taking into account the actual density of states in a-Si:H, is used to study the energy sharing between ionization and phonon production during hot carrier thermalization. This simulation yields a value of 4.3 eV for {epsilon}p.« less
