Comprehensive Modeling of Silicon Microstrip Detectors


In this work, the application of numerical device simulation to the analysis of high resistivity silicon microstrip detectors is illustrated. The analysis of DC, AC and transient responses of a single-sided, DC-coupled detector has been carried out, providing results in good agreement with experimental data. In particular, transient - mode simulation has been exploited to investigate the collection of charges generated by ionizing particles. To this purpose, an additional generation term has been incorporated into the transport equations: the motion of impact-generated carriers under the combined action of ohmic and diffusive forces is hence accounted for. Application to radiation tolerances studies is also introduced
