    Semiconductors for room-temperature radiation detector applications 2 Conference James, R B ; Schlesinger, T E ; Siffert, P ; The purpose of the symposium was to provide a forum for presenting and evaluating the most recent results on semiconductor radiation detectors for use in the energy range of a few eV to about 5 MeV. It addresses exciting new opportunities in X-ray detection, Computer Tomography (CT), bone dosimetry, and nuclear medicine (PET, SPECT). In addition to medical imaging, the book explores other applications of semiconductor radiation detection systems in security applications such as luggage scanning, dirty bomb detection, and border control.

    Physics and Engineering of Radiation Detection presents an overview of the physics of radiation detection and its applications. It covers the origins and properties of different kinds of ionizing radiation, their detection and measurement, and the procedures used to protect people and the environment from their potentially harmful effects. Starting from basic principles, this book describes the rapidly growing field of modern semiconductor detectors used for energy and position measurement radiation. The author, whose own contributions to these developments have been significant, explains the working principles of semiconductor radiation detectors in an intuitive way.

    The first practical application of semiconductors in electronics was the development of the cat's-whisker detector, a primitive semiconductor diode used in early radio receivers. Developments in quantum physics in turn led to the development of the transistor in , [2] the integrated circuit in , and the MOSFET (metal–oxide.   2. Room-Temperature Compound Semiconductor Radiation Detectors. Silicon (Si) and germanium (Ge) are traditional semiconductors used for radiation detectors that offer good performance in a wide range of applications [].The growing field of applications has stimulated the development of detectors based on compound semiconductors [].They were first investigated as radiation detectors Cited by:
