Abstract:

The invention of the semiconductor detector for charged nuclear particles opened up new possibilities in the use of pulse-height spectroscopy techniques. At the Nobel Institute a wide range of applications of semiconductor detectors is foreseen. The various experiments demand different types of detectors which generally have a limited life time. In order to secure a sufficient supply of adequate units, production of surface barrier detectors was started at the institute. A description of the detectors and the production techniques employed is given. Author
