    The microstructural and electrical conduction properties of sputtered Ta2O5 films pre-irradiated and γ-ray-irradiated were systematically investigated. Analytical results revealed that the crystallinity and the leakage current of the pre-irradiated sample were effectively improved by raising the irradiation dose at low doses of irradiation [1 M~4 M rad(Ta2O View full abstract»

    Successful beta-sensitive intraoperative probes must be capable of detecting relatively small amounts of beta-emitting radionuclides in an environment where a significant photon background exists. The probe system described in this investigation utilized a new photon correction scheme consisting of a stark of two ion-implanted-silicon detectors (IISDs) mounted in a compact unit. The rear detector ... View full abstract»

    In this work, we present a biasing scheme for silicon drift detectors (SDD's) with a homogeneous light-entrance window. The aim of the proposed solution is to provide a biasing of the single electrode of the detector on the light-entering side (back electrode) without any external electrical connection. The control of this electrode is performed by suitably biasing only the electrodes plated on th... View full abstract»

    The impact of photoelectron backscattering on spectral distributions measured with hybrid photodetector tubes has been calculated. The calculations are based on the backscattering coefficient μ, the average number of photoelectrons N¯phel emitted from the photocathode, and on the distribution of the fractional photoelectron energy q absorbed in silicon during the backscattering ...
