Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The search for new semiconductor detectors has led to interesting developments in recent years. As well as progress in the use of new materials, novel geometries have been tried. One idea being investigated is that of a “3D” detector. This has an array of electrodes that penetrate the detector bulk thus allowing these electrodes to be positioned closer to the interaction point than the comparable distance in a standard planar geometry. Methods of fabricating such a device have been investigated and subsequent devices characterised and compared with 3D simulations made using ISE-TCAD.
