Title: Development of Si-APD Timing Detectors for Nuclear Resonant Scattering using High-energy Synchrotron X-rays

Abstract

A timing detector with silicon avalanche photodiodes (Si-APDs) has been developed for nuclear resonant scattering using synchrotron x-rays. The detector had four pairs of a germanium plate 0.1mm thick and a Si-APD (3 mm in dia., a depletion layer of 30-{mu}m thickness). Using synchrotron x-rays of 67.4 keV, the efficiency increased to 1.5% for the incident beam, while the efficiency was 0.76 % without the germanium converters. A measurement of SR-PAC on Ni-61 was executed by using the detector. Some other types of timing detectors are planned for x-rays of E>20 keV.
