CERN RD39 Collaboration develops radiation-hard cryogenic silicon detectors. Recently, we have demonstrated improved radiation hardness in novel Current Injected Detectors (CID). For detector characterization, we have applied cryogenic Transient Current Technique (C-TCT). In beam tests, heavily irradiated CID detector showed capability for particle detection. Our results show that the CID detectors are operational at the temperature -50degC after the fluence of 1 times 1016 1 MeV neutron equivalent/cm2.
