5 September 2014 Spectroscopic response of Cd(Zn)Te radiation detectors with a Schottky diode
Author Affiliations +
We investigated the spectroscopic properties of several Cd(Zn)Te detectors with a Schottky contact and simulated them via a computer code. The responses were determined of 0.5-mm-thick surface-barrier Ni/Cd(Zn)Te/Ni detectors to gamma-rays from reference sources of 241Am, 133Ba, 152Eu, 137Cs and 60Co. The best measured energy-resolution at 661.67 keV (137Cs) of these detectors under 800 V of displacement voltage was better than 1.5%. The detectors’ response functions, simulated with Geant4 toolkit, agreed satisfactorily with our experimental data.
