Abstract
The MESA process for building silicon diodes is described. I-V and C-V features of MESA detectors are given. Results of pulse-height spectra measurements with a particles incident on the front and back sides of a MESA diode establish the energy resolution of these detectors, show the evolution of their response as a function of applied bias voltage, and bring information about the influence of MESA structure on charge collection. The characteristics of MESA detectors as a function of fluence are investigated in view of their possible use in high particle fluence environment. Charge collection data obtained from the measurements of the current-pulse response induced by b and a particles are presented as a function of applied bias voltage and particle fluence. Some electrical characteristics of detector material, namely the effective impurity or dopant concentrations (Neff ), the electron and hole mobilities, are studied as a function of fluence using a charge transport model. A comparison is made with the features of standard planar (SP) silicon detectors.
