In Search of the Perfect Semiconductor Photon Detector
out of 5 stars
19 May 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Peter Y. Yu
Photon detectors have many important applications, such as in heat sensing, digital cameras, solar cells and x-ray and gamma-ray detection. So far, the most common detectors are based on elemental semiconductors , such as Si and Ge. However, they are by no means perfect in tackling some of the...
