This paper presents the spectroscopic performance of two newly developed pixelated HgI2 detectors. These detectors are 1×1×0.814 cm3 and 1×1×1.016 cm3 in size. Each detector has four closely packed 1×1 mm2 anode pixels at the center of one of the 1×1 cm2 surfaces. These anode pixels are surrounded by a large anode. All results presented here are based on events from a sub-volume underneath the anode pixels. In these detectors, signals were read out by a discrete electronics based on multiple A-250 pre-amplifiers and a digital oscilloscope for sampling pulse waveforms. Depth sensing technique was used to correct the depth-dependent variation in photopeak amplitude. Main results presented are: (1)energy resolutions of 0.85 ∼ 1.3% have been achieved on these detectors; (2) the electron mobility-lifetime product was measured to be ∼1×10-2 cm2/V and the measured electron lifetime was ∼200 μs and (3) variation in electron drifting properties under different anode pixels were observed. Significant non-uniformity in internal electric field strength was also experimentally demonstrated.
