    Buried channel CTD's must be designed to isolate their depleted channels from charge generated in the substrate by penetrating radiation to obtain optimum transient radiation hardness or radiation detector time response. This can be achieved by employing an NPN structure so that the electrons generated in the N substrate are confined by the reverse biased P-N junction from diffusing across the P l...

    GaAs field-effect transistors for linear and digital circuits are finding applications in systems that have to function in a nuclear environment. This paper reviews and analyzes the radiation damage mechanisms in GaAs material and applies the material parameter changes to predict changes of electrical parameters of junction field-effect transistors due to exposure to fast neutrons and total dose i...

    The error associated with a widely used transistor neutron probability of survival formula has been assesed. The probability of survival prediction for three transistor types was compared with the actual fraction of transistors whose gain remained above a selected limit at each of several fluence levels. The agreement was very good, suggesting that the formulation used does not introduce excessive... View full abstract»

    The transient response of diffused resistors to high dose rate ionizing radiation has been experimentally investigated using a pulsed GaAs laser. The effects of bias, bias configuration, and meandered isolation on the transient response have been determined. It is shown that the transient response of a homogeneous resistor-tub structure is due to conductivity modulation, whereas the response of a ... View full abstract»

    Application of cubic splines is investigated to provide a convenient method of designing flexible reconstruction filters for computed tomography (CT). Cubic splines were found to be compatible with the basic requirements of CT filter's frequency response functions. An interactive computer software system was developed to implement the method of designing CT filters with cubic splines. The system w... View full abstract»
