" Radiation Damage in CCDs used as Particle Detectors"


[ Full Article | Questions & Answers | Help | IIB Home Page ]


The CCD detectors have proven to be extremely usefull devices used for the precision 3-dimensional vertexing in the e+e- collider experiments such as the SLD experiment operating with the linear collider (SLC) at SLAC. The paper describes the radiation damage sensitivity of such detectors. The issue of the radiation damage is relevant especially for the future experiments running with the next liner colliders.
