In order to solve the power distribution problem of detectors in high energy physics experiments, a full on-chip regulator is presented in this paper. It provides the analog power supply for CMOS pixel sensors. The maximum load current is 200 mA. The proposed regulator is stable in the full range of load current by introducing a zero and adapting the locations of poles and zeros. The compensation ... View full abstract»

| |PDF (1207 KB) | HTML

The BeamCal detector, one of the calorimeters in the forward region of the International Linear Collider detector, will serve three purposes: ensure hermeticity of the detector for small polar angles, reduce the backscattering from beamstrahlung electron-positron pairs into the detector center, and provide a low-latency signal for beam diagnostics. The BeamCal specifications in terms of noise supp... View full abstract»

The ghosting recovery mechanisms in multilayer selenium X-ray detector structures for mammography are experimentally and theoretically investigated. The experiments have been carried out under low positive applied electric field . A ghost removal technique is investigated by reversing the bias polarity during the natural recovery process. The theoretical model considers accumulated trapped charges... View full abstract»

The solution for management of a nuclear waste package is chosen according to its radiological characteristics. One of the most important of these features is the -activity which is due to actinides ( U, U, Pu, etc.) If non-destructive passive methods are not sufficient to quantify the latter, non-destructive active methods based on the fission process represent a solution of interest. First, thes... View full abstract»

| |PDF (912 KB) | HTML

The proliferation of optical elements in systems that are subject to harsh ionizing radiation environments prompts the need for commercially available radiation-hard materials, such as laser materials. In the present study, changes in the material optical absorption are compared for a suite of single-crystal YAG, Nd3+:YAG, and Cr3+,Nd3+:YAG laser materials in respo... View full abstract»

| |PDF (183 KB) | HTML

Nowadays the reliability issues of SRAM-based Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) operating in harsh environments are well understood. One major effect is Single Event Upsets (SEUs), which are able to invert the stored logical value in flip-flops and memory cells. This issue is more serious when the affected memory cells are part of the configuration memory used for programming the circuit func... View full abstract»

| |PDF (1032 KB) | HTML

This paper examines individual radiation effects caused by 110 keV electrons and 170 keV protons, and combined radiation effects induced by 110 keV electrons together with 170 keV protons on the forward current gain of NPN bipolar junction transistors (3DG130, 3DG112). Key parameters were measured in-situ and the change in current gain of the NPN bipolar junction transistors is obtained at a fixed... View full abstract»

This paper presents the growth, fabrication and characterization of indium-doped cadmium manganese telluride (CdMnTe) crystals grown by the vertical Bridgman technique. The 10 × 10 × 1.9 mm3 samples have been fabricated, and the charge collection properties of the CdMnTe detectors have been measured. Alpha-particle spectroscopy measurements have yielded an average charge c... View full abstract»

• ### A Dynamic Slew Correction Circuit for Low Noise Silicon Detector Pre-amplifiers

Publication Year: 2012, Page(s):642 - 646
Cited by:  Papers (5)
| |PDF (1303 KB) | HTML

This manuscript introduces a transistor level technique that results in simultaneous improved slew rate and noise performance for applications where only the final settled output voltage over a predefined time frame is important - such as silicon detector read out charge-to-voltage reset amplifiers. For large signal swings, slew limitation is detected and compensated dynamically. For non-slew limi... View full abstract»

• ### Readout System With On-Board Demodulation for CMB Polarization Experiments Using Coherent Polarimeter Arrays

Publication Year: 2012, Page(s):647 - 655
| |PDF (2198 KB) | HTML

B-modes are special patterns in cosmic microwave background (CMB) polarization. Degree-scale B-modes are smoking-gun signatures of primordial gravitational waves. The generic strategy of CMB polarization experiments is to employ a large number of polarimeters for improving the statistics. The Q/U Imaging ExperimenT-II (QUIET-II) has been proposed to detect B-modes by using the world's largest cohe... View full abstract»

| |PDF (520 KB) | HTML

Despite the large interest in the application of LaBr3:Ce3+, little is known yet about its optical properties, as measurements are hampered by the hygroscopicity of LaBr3:Ce3+ and because it is not trivial to produce crystals with optically polished surfaces. Here, the absorption and scattering lengths as well as the refractive index of LaBr3:... View full abstract»

| |PDF (1706 KB) | HTML

In order to protect AC-coupled Silicon strip detectors (SSD) in beam accidents, punch-through protection (PTP) structures are implemented, which are designed to clamp the strip potential to ground when large charges in the bulk break down the electric field. We present a study where we cause the field in the bulk to collapse by illumination with 1064 nm IR pulses, and measure the voltages on the s... View full abstract»

Due to a combination of conversion factor and spreadsheet format errors, Table II in the original paper (ibid., vol. 57, no. 6, pp. 3135-3142, Dec. 2010) is incorrect. A corrected version of Table II is presented here. Also, the last sentence in Section IV should read: Not surprisingly, Composite Model 2, which weighs the CRRES results more heavily, predicts a dose ~3-8 times higher than the NASA ...
