Abstract

We report radiation hardness tests performed, with a white neutron beam, at the Geel Electron LINear Accelerator in Belgium on silicon Photo-Multipliers. These are semiconductor photon detectors made of a square matrix of Geiger-Mode Avalanche photo-diodes on a silicon substrate. Several samples from different manufacturers have been irradiated integrating up to about 6.2 × 1091-MeV-equivalent neutrons per cm2. © 2013 IEEE.
