Abstract

The present paper describes a new type of cylindrical X-ray detector based on thick amorphous silicon diodes. The authors report on the successful development of these detectors that have diameters as small as 3mm. The effect of silane dilution in hydrogen on deposition rate, powder formation, layer adhesion and detector performance is discussed. A set of deposition parameters is presented, that allows a reasonable compromise between the mentioned effects. First prototypes of this type of dosimeter have been characterised with the radiation from a 60Co source in a hospital. The corresponding results and interpretation are given in this paper.
