7 November 1994 Soft x-ray detection efficiency of large-area avalanche photodiodes

The efficiency of beveled edge type avalanche photodiodes has been determined for soft x rays in the range 50 eV to 300 eV. An efficiency of over 80% is measured for energies below the Si L absorption edge at 100 eV. The measured efficiency is described by a model which accounts for absorption in an oxide overlayer and recombination at the front surface of the diode. These results are very encouraging for soft x-ray/EUV applications involving both laser-produced plasma sources and synchrotron radiation.
