    Cited by:  Papers (5)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (554 KB)

    Radioactivity induced in detector materials by cosmic rays and radiation belt protons provides an ultimate limit to the sensitivity of gamma-ray spectrometers used for gamma-ray astronomy and remote sensing spectroscopy of planetary bodies. The increasing use of high resolution germanium spectrometers has made it worthwhile to adapt predictive techniques for this component based on those previousl... View full abstract»

    A comparison has been made between the heavy ions from the ALICE cyclotron and Californium-252. The results of SEU cross-section measurements support the use of the CASE system (Californium-252 Assessment of Single-event Effects) to simulate cosmic ray effects in VLSI circuits.

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (648 KB)

    Microdosimetric comparisions of volumes of silicon and gallium arsenide exposed to protons of 25 to 300 MeV have been performed using a computer simulation. Significant differences between silicon and gallium arsenide are seen in the energy-deposition spectra. The effect of the surrounding material, the energy and mass spectra of the recoiling nuclei, and the effect of scaling are also presented a... View full abstract»

  • Generation of Radiation Transport Geometry from Computer-Generated Design Data

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):1078 - 1083
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2186 KB)

    Monte Carlo simulation is a valuable tool for analyzing radiation effects in three-dimensional objects. Generating the geometry data necessary for describing solids to the simulation programs can be tedious and time consuming, and it is extremely error-prone. A faster, more accurate method of defining geometry data would speed up the radiation transport analysis process sufficiently for the analys... View full abstract»

  • Production of a "Standard" Radiation Environment to Minimize Dosimetry Errors in Flash X-Ray Parts Testing

    Cited by:  Papers (5)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1133 KB)

    Calculations have been performed to indicate the effects of differing device caps and of spectrum filtration on dosimetry errors in flash x-ray parts testing. Dosimetry typically used for upset or latch-up testing of microelectronic devices with flash x-ray sources can be in error by 300% or more due to interface dose enhancement effects. When the use of spectrum hardening is permissible, placing ... View full abstract»

  • Monte Carlo Calculations of Irradiation Test Photon Spectra

    Calculations of scattered photon spectra in concrete rooms are made, by means of the Monte Carlo method, for Co-60 sources of the type used in irradiation testing of electronic devices. It is found that the scattered photon spectrum shape is heavily dependent on the location of source and target, and that in devices where dose enhancement can occur, there can be substantial variation in the absorb...

    The effects of field funneling and range straggling have been quantitatively observed in the measurement of charge collected from alpha-particle tracks in silicon surface-barrier charged-particle detectors. The method described may be used for the straight-forward measurement of charge collection from heavy ions in these and other semiconductor devices. View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1616 KB)

    Degradation of neutron-sensitive devices for fusion diagnostics is calculated as a function of location in ducts through bulk shields. It is shown that single-crystal semiconductor devices, such as n/p silicon diodes, will undergo severe degradation even at the rear of the shield. It will be necessary to replace devices at frequent intervals or withdraw semiconductor parts after a measurement. Dev... View full abstract»

    In this paper data are presented that show the response, i.e., shift in threshold voltage, Δ VT, as a function of dose, D, up to a megarad for radiation-soft PMOS transistors employed as dosimeters. The relationship between Δ VT and D was determined with a calibrated Co-60 gamma-ray source. The PMOS dosimeters were operated with the threshold voltage continuously indicating, i.e., ...
