Low-Power Large-Area Radiation Detector for Space Science Measurements

Metadata Updated: March 23, 2019

The objective of this task is to develop a low-power, large-area detectors from SiC, taking advantage of very low thermal noise characteristics and high radiation tolerance of SiC compared to silicon (Si) devices, and document key characteristics, specifically signal-to-noise, resolution and bias voltage when exposed to 5 MeV alpha particles. We intend to develop, demonstrate, and characterize a large area (200 mm[HTML_REMOVED]) detector made from robust HPSI SiC, thus bringing cutting-edge technology to future science missions.The SiC LET detectors will be fabricated as Schottky diodes using micro-fabrication processes.[HTML_REMOVED] The resulting diodes will be diced and mounted to custom-designed aluminum frames.[HTML_REMOVED] A 5-MeV alpha particle source will be used for characterization tests.
