Abstract:

Germanium strip detectors combine both the excellent energy resolution typical of germanium detectors and fine spatial resolution possible in a strip detector. They are applicable to sensitive, high spectral resolution nu-ray detectors using coded-aperture or Compton telescope techniques. Our first detector is in a planar geometry with orthogonal strips on the upper and lower detector surfaces, providing 9 mm spatial resolution. The detector has 5 strips on each surface and an active volume of 45x45x12 mm. Good spatial and energy resolution are demonstrated.
