3D detectors with electrodes penetrating through the entire silicon substrate have many advantages over conventional planar silicon technology, for example, high radiation tolerance. High aspect ratio through-wafer holes are essential in such fabrication, and deep reactive ion etching (DRIE) is used. A series of DRIE processes were tested and optimised to achieve the required aspect ratio, and in 5-¿m wide trenches, aspect ratios of 58:1 were achieved.
