Abstract

The signal produced by protons in a-Si:H detectors has been measured. The charge collected from a 5.8 μm p-i-n diode is studied as a function of the reverse bias and the energy deposited in the detector. The charge collection process is discussed. Limits on the pair-creation energy, Ep, are obtained (3.4 eV<Ep< 4.5 eV).
