The main activities of the radiation detectors laboratory at IMB-CNM are:

  • Electrical test of semiconductor radiation detectors and other microelectronic devices in probe station with controlled temperature
  • Charge collection efficiency measurements with low activity sealed radiation sources
  • Tests of radiation effects on electronic devices and integrated circuits
  • Evaluation of bump-bonding yield in imaging systems
  • Test of electronic systems related to radiation detectors and readout

The laboratory is a 2nd category radioactive facility authorized by the Spanish Nuclear Safety Council (CSN).
