More about the invention:
The invention refers to semiconductor detectors of ionizing radiation. The hybrid pixel detector of ionizing radiation contains a semiconductor structured sensor for detecting ionizing radiation, including both a matrix of column elements electrically isolated from each other by a thin dielectric layer and a readout chip bump-bonded to the sensor with the thickness of 4 mm and the pixel sensor size of 55 µm or 110 µm. The technological outcome is increase in radiation detection efficiency and also improvement in detector space and energy resolution.
