Title: Development of a System for Measuring the Shape of β Spectra Using a Semiconductor Si Detector

A system for the measurement of beta energy spectra has been developed. It is based on a silicon semi-conductor detector operating at liquid nitrogen temperatures, under ultra high-vacuum. Monte-Carlo simulations were made to optimize the detection chamber and the source holder. Descriptions of the electronic and mechanical systems are included, as well as the first measured spectra.
