An Interdigitated Pixel PIN Detector for Energetic Particle Spectroscopy in Space

By R. A. Mewaldt, W. R. Cook, A. C. Cummings, T. J. Cunningham, M. Mazed and E. R. Fossum


We describe a new two-dimensional position-sensitive detector, now under development, for use in space-borne energetic particle spectrometers. The novel feature of this device is the use of interdigitated pixels to provide both dimensions of position information from a single side of the detector, while a measurement of the energy deposition is derived from the opposite side. An advantage of this approach is that significant reductions in the complexity, power, and weight of the associated read-out electronics can be realized without sacrificing position or energy resolution. 1
