Abstract

Advanced materials are being evaluated for use as novel radiation detectors and microelectronic devices, including, potentially, synthetic diamond radiation-hard detectors for high-energy physics experiments and tissue equivalent dosimeters. Use of a nuclear microprobe has allowed spatially resolved electrical properties of the detector material to be measured. However quantitative analysis requires good models for charge collection mechanisms by ion beam induced charge (IBIC). In fact, nuclear microprobe analysis is playing an increasingly prominent role in the analysis of detector materials and devices by IBIC, with secondary roles also being played by ionoluminescence (IL) and the traditi..
