- A. The detector leakage current increases linearly with hadrons fluence:
- =II V
- fluency, Vthe detector bulk,
- I =(51)10-17 Асм-1for fast neutronsat
- T = +20º C(no self-annealing)
- Possible solution at high hadrons fluence:
- work at low temperature -(30-50)°C, detector leakage current doubles it’s value every 8 degrees;
- Detectors module design required very good thermo contact between Si-sensor and cooling plate for the excluding of the heating and thermo break down /3/

3-rd meeting CBM-MPD, 1-3 June'09

- I-V and C-V measurements for detector RWS-01/01-69-7 before and after neutrons /3/ irradiation 4.9×1014 n/cm2
- Blue color curves – measurements at +20°C before irradiation
- Red color curves – measurements at -28°C after irradiation
- Topology of detector:
- 32-p+strips;
- 63×63×0.3 mm3;
- 5 kOhm×cm n-type Si-Wacker, <111>

B.Decreasing of the charge collection efficiency (CCE) with increasing hadrons fluence

- The CCE decreases 8%/1014 n/cm2 and does not depend on initial silicon type, extrapolation of this curve to 1015 n/cm2 give the value for signal equal 20% from initial amplitude /3/
- What to do???
- to change of Si-planes after each 5×1014 n/cm2???;
- to work with (20-10)% of CCE;
- to work at low temperatures and at forward bias (experience of RD39, LAZARUS effect /1/ )

3-rd meeting CBM-MPD, 1-3 June'09

C.The detector full depletion voltage Ufd increases with hadrons fluence (after point inversion of type conductivity for n-type Si). This effect could be diminished /2, 4/ applying the oxygenated Si and low resistivity Si as a starting detectors material:

CZ (MCZ) has higher oxygen concentration in crystal ingot, low resistivity material (100 – 800 Ohm cm)

FZ-Si-p – no conductivity type inversion

FZ-Si-(n- or p-type) + O2 during the detectors technology fabrication

Remark:in the real experiments with irradiated detectors Ud>Ufd for the attainment of plato CCE=f(Ud) and max S/N

3-rd meeting CBM-MPD, 1-3 June'09

Inversion of bulk type conductivity (n-type to p-type) at irradiation Si-sensors

- Sensor (20×20×0.4) mm3at biasUd=15Virradiated by fast neutrons
- Capacity of detector measured (F=1 кГц) directly at irradiation on the neutrons chanel
- Initial parameters of Si:
- n-type, <111>, (FZ-Wacker);
- ρ=6 кОm×сm(Ufd=80 В)
- Point inversion for this detector equal (2÷3)×1012n/сm2

Direct method for the measuring of the point inversion bulk type conductivity/5/

3-rd meeting CBM-MPD, 1-3 June'09

Is it an alternative to SILICON to construct a detector with large area in radiation hard environment???

Possible candidates: CVD-C, CdTe, GaAs and???

CVD-C: (-) commercial wafers with big area???, big cost, small (50-150mkm) CCLength; (+) radiation hardness!!!

CdTe(CdZnTe): (-) small area of wafers (1-5 cm2); high cost (5-10 $/mm3) for mono crystal; (+) high radiation condition of policrystaline (CERN-R&D for luminosity monitor)

GaAs: (-) more expensive that Si-detectors, mechanical conditions lower that Si; (+) bigger radiation hardness that Si! (need to study of rad.hard. for real detectors)

3-rd meeting CBM-MPD, 1-3 June'09

n+ strips large area in radiation hard environment???

p+ stop rings

DS-strip detector: n+side with p+stop ring/n+strip3-rd meeting CBM-MPD, 1-3 June'09

DS-strip sensors need to study (surface) radiation effects on the both sides

What difference between n+ and p+ sides for DS-strip sensors?

- each n+ strip isolated by p+ stop ring
- inter n+ strip region need bigger value of full depletion voltage in compare with bulk depletion
- with over depletion increase electric field in inter n+strip region and possible break down n+ strip to p+ stop ring
- detectors from difference manufactures have individual parameters (thickness of dielectric layers, density of charge in SiO2, profile of implantation layers, et al)

Conclusion: on the both sides

- Bulk damage effects in Si crystal are very good study and understood (big experimental data of ROSE collaboration for LHC experiments, RD48)
- Surface damage effects dependent from topology and technology sensors (inter strip distance, p+ stop ring on n+ side, thickness of SiO2, et all)
- DS-strip sensor need to study radiation hardness for both sides n+ and p+ before- and after point inversion (inter strip resistance, inter strip capacitance, cross talk, S/N, break down on p+ or n+ side?)
- Sensors after high hadron fluence need very good thermo contact with cooling system (special design modules/ladders)
